This post is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group™ and Soma, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #givesoma http://cmp.ly/3/8vNxcO.

At the Googleplex, the chefs like to get creative with the water. I've seen water infused with rosemary, mint, cucumber, lime, thyme and tarragon (Separately, not all combined. That would be gross.). Sometimes the oddest sounding ones are the most refreshing—I'm looking at you, bell pepper water. So I thought I'd try a water-infused recipe of my own at home with my new Soma. I sliced up some pears and put them in the bottom of my Soma, for a water-infused recipe that's easy and delicious.

I'm loving my Soma glass water filter. San Franciscans will recognize the name as the area South of Market in this lovely city, and yes, the Soma water filter was created here. The founders set out to create a water filter that was not only functional, but organic and beautiful all at the same time. The filters are 100% biodegradable and use coconut shell carbon, silk, and a plant-based filter casing to filter water. And Soma partners with Charity:Water so that every filter you buy helps bring clean drinking water to those in need.

Soma would make a great holiday gift, especially as a gift for the host of one of the many holiday parties you'll be hitting up over the next month. When you purchase Soma for $49, you are automatically enrolled in their fresh filter program, which sends replacement filters to your home every two months. The cost is $12.99 (less than a quarter/day) and shipping is always free.

Beautiful, biodegradable and helping those in need. That's a pretty tall order for a water filter, but Soma pulls it off. Find them on Twitter and Instagram to see more of what they're doing to revolutionize the way we drink water.

  2. Hi Elise!

    Lovely - I'm a huge fan of infused water. My mom used to make lemon-infused water all the time when I was a kid. I didn't appreciate it then and was aggravated that I didn't get to drink juice/soda like other children, but I love it now. ;) My favs are still citrus-based, and I like to add frozen grape 'ice cubes' in the summer. :D

    Also, it sounds like our lives parallel a little bit - I also take those white shuttle buses down the peninsula for work, and love living in the city (as much as it makes it hard to balance work and social life sometimes). Cheers!
