The Truth About CO2: Locks, Stocks, and Bubbles
CO2: IGNORANCE MAY BE BLISS, BUT WE PREFER TO BE SAVVY
Most home soda machine owners happily exchange their empty CO2 canisters without really thinking twice about it. They don't realize this readily available gas is easily refillable close to home. A 50 lb. tank averages $35-$50 for refill and a refill of a 12 oz. canister $3-$5. So why do soda machine makers charge $15-$30 for a 16-20 oz. canister???
WE ARE NOT A GAS COMPANY, WE ARE A BEVERAGE COMPANY
That's why we don't sell gas. A review of financials reveals a 90% profit margin on a canister of CO2. While this is a great model for investors, we had a time hard thinking of ANYTHING else that had such a huge profit margin. Time to wake up and smell the bubbles people...
GAIA SODA SYSTEM: NO PROPRIETARY LOCKS ON CO2 CHARGERS!
Other companies on the market don't actually sell the canisters, but have consumers sign a lease claiming that the cylinders are the company's property and filling them elsewhere violates the lease agreement. Their cylinders also feature a proprietary lock that prevents easy and cheap refills. Gaia Soda System has a universal, non-proprietary cartridge you can fill yourself.
GREEN MEANS LOCAL: REFILL YOUR OWN CO2
While the home soda machine is eco-friendly, the carbonator exchange program is more black than green. CO2 refills can be obtained easily from a variety of local, convenient places rather than shipping them excess distances for refill. Keep it local with Gaia Soda.
FEW CHOICES IN THE MARKETPLACE, UNTIL NOW!
Although a relatively new trend, the home soda machine has certainly invaded the US market and is projected to gain in popularity. Reviews of home soda machines are generally VERY positive. After all, it is an amazing kitchen gadget. Many consumers who know the TRUTH about CO2 are upset about the refill situation. However, most consumers have no idea and furthermore, there are NO other options in the marketplace.
