With summer thirst just around the corner – stay active and stay healthy all season long with filtered water and reusable water bottles for hydration on-the-go.  Spring and summer activities require water and lots of it – but that doesn’t mean stocking up on bottled water. Visit our Conscious Consumer Marketplace to find bottled water alternatives and start reducing your carbon footprint.

Bottled water is a huge habit we need to break. Nearly 8.3 million gallons of water went into plastic containers in 2006.  That’s not the only drain on resources, though. The energy used to make those bottles and transport that water also takes a heavy toll.  Keep carbon out of the air and chemicals out of your water – by filtering your own water right at the tap and using non-plastic reusable water bottles for the whole family.

Conscious Consumer Marketplace logoThere are many water filters that can work for your lifestyle.  Pur, for one, makes a number of water filtration systems that fit directly on your tap or for storage in your fridge.  Also think about getting a durable stainless steel or lined aluminum bottle.  Klean Kanteen makes stainless steel bottles—with cool colors for kids to start them on healthy, conscious, smarter habits now. And they’ll save you money too! Drinking bottled water can cost up to $1,400.00 per year; drinking the same amount from the tap costs around $0.59 for the year, according to an article in the New York Times.

Visit our Conscious Consumer Marketplace at www.consciousconsumer.org and get connected with healthier choices for you and the planet – today.
