Sodastream Economical Worth and Environmental Cost?

Chemicalkinetics | Aug 16, 201312:53 PM

Hi all. I like soda, but I rarely drink them (less than one per month). My question is not so much for me, but in general.

I like the customization concept of Sodastream and the related products, and many unique soda can be prepared. My question is about the economic aspect. If one were to only make standard soda (like coke and ginger ale), would it be cheaper to buy cases of Coca cola, or would it be cheaper to use Sodastream? What do you think?

The second question is about its environmental benefit. Sodasteam stated that it is more environmental to make soda at home than to buy it. What do you think?

"Using your own home carbonation system means:

Less packaging waste from cans and bottles.
Less pollution caused by transport of bottled beverages.

One SodaStream carbonator makes 60 or 110 liters, equivalent to 170 or 310 aluminum cans! When empty, the carbonator is refilled and reused, ready to make more fizzy and tasty soda whenever you want it."
