Buy Less Bottled Water

There are a few things you can do to reduce the amount of bottled water that you buy. Here are mine.

  1. When I do buy a bottle of water, I refill it for days and days. I have a filtered water system in my fridge, and I can put that in there. The reality is that few of us live in a place where the tap water is dangerous. You could drink tap water, and if you don’t like the taste, put in a few drops of lemon or lime juice. No, it doesn’t cause cancer.
  2. Pour your water into a glass. No reason to use up bottles at home!
  3. I bought a Camelback. You can grab these or ones like them on eBay or at local military surplus or camping stores. Keep refilling these, and take care of them. They’re great at home, in the car, when you’re doing sports, hey even in the mall. I plan to wear one around Disney on my next vacation. Keep your water fresh and handy without using more plastic.

There’s always more we can do. Think about how you can reduce waste and things you buy that are over-packaged. Evidently your empty bottle of water will take 1000 years to break down on a land fill. Let’s plan ahead!
