Metal Water Bottles
I stay pretty active these days! Between juggling my career, family and work-out routine, I couldn't get by one day without having a full plastic water bottle to keep me hydrated. I also am very conscious of the environment, so I tend to re-use my water bottles. I hate to think that my need to stay hydrated with my plastic water bottles could contribute to our overflowing landfills! I have been buying water in bulk and re-using the plastic water bottle. I had no idea that re-using my water bottles would be such a bad and potentially hazardous idea! I discovered this recently while I was riding my bike with a good friend of mine and she took a look at my 'recycled' water bottle and told me that recently there was an FDA warning about re-using plastic water bottles and it was totally unsafe. She had suggested I switch over to metal water bottles instead.
After a little research I had discovered that metal water bottles are overall better for the environment and my wallet. Rather than buy my water in bulk, I could just use filtered water and refill my metal water bottle, as often as I need to! It is just as convenient, if not more so! My family is very excited about my switch to metal water bottles! I bought one for my husband, my two active teenage boys and of course one for myself! My husband and I both appreciate the money we save on buying our water in bulk! We'll definitely be sticking with the metal water bottles and so should you!
