Are you still drinking bottled water?

Bottled water is bad for the Earth and for you for many reasons:
  • Plastic bottles are made from petroleum. (Not to mention may leach scary chemicals into your water.)
  • The plants run on fossil fuels.
  • Most of the time the water is filtered tap water, so you're paying for something you can do at home.
  • Even if you recylce your bottles, most people don't, and don't forget the packing materials the water is sent to the store in: a cardboard flat wrapped in unrecyclable plastic wrap.
  • Bottled water is expensive over time for you, the consumer.
  • Trucks haul the water all over the country creating air pollution and consuming fuel.

We use a PUR on faucet 3-step purifier for all of our cooking and drinking water and carry our own bottles (DH even takes jugs of water from home to work as they only have bottled water and drinks available there)--I prefer the great SIGG bottles.

And that concludes my public service announcement for the day.

Where did you get yours? I'm thinking of getting one for Denny....the bottle's I mean, of course.
And now I'm rambling at the keyboard, LOL

If you can find them in any stores, MySIGG carries them, as does

Sigh... I know, I know, but I can't get over my issue with tap water. I grew up with well water that was less than desirable,and I just can't make myself drink tap water, even know. I recycle the bottles and the cardboard it comes in, at least.
