Anyone got a soda stream? My San Pellegrino habit is killing turtles and porpoises.

Does tap water taste like shit out of them?

yeah I've been on the sodastream train for years. even set one up in my old office (currently lobbying for a sparkling water tap at my current one)

they are great. tastes just like the real thing, even with shit tap water (I only use tap water). it means you always have sparkling water….. price of canisters has gone up a bit though. still cheaper and more convenient than buying tonnes of it every time you go to a shop though. it's also much more fizzy. eye-wateringly so (no nan)

If it's an ethical problem soda stream is complicit in the displacement and mistreatment of Palestinians. There are other brands out there.

Really? I remember costing it out before and it was cheaper to just buy from the shops. Is that def the case?
