For people who like their soda water but don’t like contributing to landfills or testing the capacity of municipal recycling programs, here’s a great at-home soda maker from Soda Sparkle. $60 (or less) will get you a starter kit with two bottles, a handful of CO2 cartridges, and a screw-on lid that releases carbonation into the water. Each bottle ends up costing 30 to 40 cents to bubble-ize, and the lid can go into drawers when not in use. That’s one less bit of life clutter, which everyone will be thankful for. — Philly McGifty aka Lise Funderburg
