Twelve Weeks of Water Bottle Giveaways

The generous folks at Camelbak, Nalgene, and ThinkSport have each agreed to four weeks of giveaways of the bottles we reviewed in Gardenaut's BPA-Free Water Bottle Showdown last month. We'll run giveaways in rotation, which means we have twelve weeks of prizes for Gardenaut readers!

For this week's giveaway, we're thinking about the searing heat of summer, which is well on its way in Central Texas.

Comment on this post with a short poem about water for a chance to win a ThinkSport stainless-steel water bottle of your choice, a $22 value shipped free to any U.S. resident 18 or over.

No purchase is necessary to enter, and we don't care if your entry is an ode, a haiku, a limerick, a sonnet, or just a little free verse - just ruminate for a few seconds on the glory of H2O and you'll be in the running for this sleek, portable, chilled-H2O delivery system!

We'll accept entries until 5 p.m. CT Friday, June 6, and will select a winner at random, posting it here on Gardenaut and sending in winner info to PRIZEYWinners. The winner will have five days to claim their prize by emailing us with their mailing address and prize preference.

Water, water everywhere
but not a drop to drink

(I recite this to my kids in the tub as a reminder not to drink the tub water...)

Water pressure drop
Why is it always after
I lather my hair?

Aubrey said...

I love having water to drink
But hate walking up to the sink
So this water bottle
Will relieve my waddle
So maybe I'll win it, I think?

A Teacher's Glass of Water

Last day of school...
too many tugs at my heart...
my head aches...
my throat is parched...
icy cold water...
a drink to refresh...
to give me time to think...
to remember the good
and forget the bad...
smiles and hugs...
goodbyes and thanks...
their sweet smiles
are like a cold glass of water
for my soul.

John said...

Rub a dub dub
my dog will only drink water
from the tub

the playground is filled
with bright rainbows through water
sprinklers make my day

(that's supposed to be a haiku)

NateAndJakesMom said...

Water is life but we are told to be careful,
Bottled, filtered, straight from the tap?
I plan to educate myself and keep a glass full,
and then drink up and take a well-deserved nap.

Staci said...

How I'd love me a bottle for my water
because the weather is getting hotter
I have to work in my garden so
give me this bottle for on the go

PS said...

Love to drink H20
satisfy my thirst like
no one knows!

Sandy M said...

The fish don't swim
They walk with feet as fins
Through water
Through water

Dolly said...

Summer's here, but worry not.
Water's gonna quench the hot
and weary traveler's wicked thirst.
Water hose fills, balloons burst,
Slip n' Slide, and swimming pools.
Squirt my sister--break the rules!

Naomi said...

I am so thirsty,
having had to repurpose
a cabinet full of condemned plastic
I need a new vessel

Nancy said...

Water is good
Water is great
Water is top rate

Water is awesome
Water is sweet
Water is a refreshing treat

Kat said...

Moisture is the essence of wetness, and wetness is the essence of beauty.

Johnny and Alisha said...

We drink water all day long
we drink water 'til it's gone!

Grace said...

Water is so good.
So wet and so fresh.
I drink lots of it.

There was an Old Person of Cadiz,
Who was always polite to all ladies;
But in handing his daughter,
He fell into the water,
Which drowned that Old Person of Cadiz.
Not mine, but cute!

windycindy said...

Water so frosty
In a stainless steel bottle -
I do hope I win.

Iris said...

Oh icy cold water
Beloved by my daughter
When she's teething and crying.
(That can be so trying.)
We need a safe drink
When we're far from the sink.
When we go for a drive
Water keeps us alive.
She drinks it at night
And when we're out for a bite.
If this bottle's BPA-free,
It's the bottle for me.

Dawn said...

water is fun
water is cool
I'll have to just drink it
'cause i don't have a pool

Ginny said...

Sparkling Water
Good to Drink
Good to Swim

Neen said...

Cool and refreshing
water always hits the spot.
Most important drink.

Phyllis Sommer said...

keeps it all flowing
keeps all my garden growing
water i'm knowing

(a rhyming haiku!)

Leeanthro said...

Darn, I was going to say "Water, water everywhere, but not a drop to drink." But someone already said that!

Drinking water from a ThinkSport
Would be something great to report

Sherry G said...

Water is SO essential for this mom's 8.5 month pregnant bod. I'm still nursing my 16 month old too! Hook me up with a great bottle that will help me to remember to stay hydrated!!

Water, Water everywhere
But not a drop to drink!

LisaW said...

drip, drop, trickle
splash, flow, flood
without soft, wet water,
how would we have mud?!?

Allison Kathleen said...

I've been needing a waterbottle since I started working out at the gym. This would be perfect!

Panjo Kids said...

My son, he drinks water, it's true.
What's important is what he drinks THROUGH!
No bad plastics for us,
they cause such a fuss,
Gardenaut we are counting on YOU!

katerina said...

uncontaminated by the evil that
eminates from other containers
pure, silky smooth
quenching my thirst
with it's clear, natural goodness
Hold it for me
in your beauty.

Playful Professional said...

I drink a lot
When it is hot
So I am not.

Julia said...

Water's for fish, drink if you wish. Ride in a boat, float, float, float. Sip, enjoy, play with bath toys. Quench your thirst, reach for water first!

Amy said...

Waves from the ocean wash over the sand. A bubbling stream slips over the rocks. Water flows from the tap into my bubblebath. Water brings me peace.

Gus and Clay's Mama said...

Drink your water now, they say
but wait, my bottle's bpa!
I must find myself something new
and not just any bottle will do
I think what I will do my dear,
is try to win this bottle here!

superfizz said...

Water is a must. I trust
in h2O. To make my garden grow.

chickamonpie said...

Babies babies drink your water to grow strong and tall, mommy is trying to drink water too and throw her soda out!

Lisa said...

Living in Oregon
Water abounds.
Best tap water
I have ever tasted.
They tell us
It is cleaner than most purchased water.
But it still needs
A safe container.

kevnjacks said...

Thinking about it makes me thirsty.
Thinking about it reminds me of my thirsty plants outside that need watering.

water is the key to survive
we bath, we drink, we cook

I love water when it's in a bottle, but not when it falls from the air.

The first keeps me healthy and strong, but the other just messes up my hair.

GBH said...

Roses are red,
Water is clear.
Do you think this poem
Reads kind of queer?

Morgan said...

I used to reuse bottles
they were all plastic
I drink less water now
because the taste makes me feel sick

Judith said...

I love to drink water and with all the news these days about the plastic bottles, this will be a welcome change...Thxs judith

Eight glasses a day. Water, water, water, so I don't ruin my diet today! !

Gold said...

As the days may be even hotter,
We all may need lots of water.
May the bottles we drink
Be BPA free, we think,
For every son and daughter.

Kelly said...

Water water falling all around
From the sky into the ground
Tastes so good and feels so nice
Whether rain or snow or ice!

Jet'set said...

if there's a puddle about
my boy is there jumping and splashing
when the spring rains come

czeltic girl said...

So crazy thirsty.
Why is there no water near?
Oh, wait...my ThinkSport!

lace said...

From my very soon to be 4 year old niece.

"Ice, why won't you let me eat you. you just run away."

Reiza said...

Let's try a haiku. It sucks. I know. Sorry.

Water lacks caffeine.
Frappacino you are not.
I like you anyway.

Kristy said...

To win, your thirst you cannot let
You need some water that is wet.
Water I think
is good to drink
Water escapes you
when you sweat
Water can take
away the stink
Water is harmless
I wouldn't bet
Water is dreadful
if you sink.

Rosalie said...

Cared for Aunt's plant while she was away
She'd had it since her wedding day
Occasions since had all been marked
Each child's birth, with a new branch--
As well as 30 anniversaries.
About day three it looked so sad
Jade plant must need a drink real bad
And so I gave it more
Just to be sure.
Then came the misting,
And spring rain
Not better yet? I feel your pain.
This morning from it's place of honor
Jade plant toppled, 'twas a goner.
Somebody, Please! Go tell Aunt Rhody.

Silver streams fall
Cool comfort
Tears languish and memories fade
A cleansing rebirth
Healing anew

Two of H and one of O,
Put it in a bottle and away we go!

Avoid the plastic, go with steel,
A ThinkSport bottle has sex appeal!

Lilith Silvermane said...

Have you ever noticed it's the cleanest thing coming out, and becomes the dirtiest thing when you get in?

Water... it's like a dirt sponge!

Brooke said...

Ah, water.
make my daughters

Anonymous said...

The water bottle you take to school
The water in it is nice and cool
You drink a bit, the rest you throw.
The water could help a plant grow.


Emily said...

water, oh water, how i love thee
you make my tea, both hot and cold
you cool the air by raining on me
you make things clean and so fresh
oh water, i love you.

Oh...I so need that. I love Arizona tea and have recently found it in the powdered form.
