Green Tip Tuesday - Bottled Water

Here's today Green Tip:

Do not use bottled water! I have been working on this for a long time, but I still buy the occassional 48 pack when it's on sale and when I have a coupon. So I know this is a tough one. My grandma got the PuR filter thingy installed and I haven't tasted the water, but we have very dirty and hard water so I want to know how it tastes. We do NOT use our water for cooking, we use filtered water from the fridge. We only use the sink water to wash dishes and to take a bath, of course.

So I am going to challenge myself and anyone else who wants to join to not use bottled water for a whole month!! Wow, that sounds hard for me know. But I'm almost sure I can do it. I cleaned up and reorganized the kitchen a few weeks ago and I have all my bottles and lids all in one spot.

1.5 million barrels of oil in the US alone are used to make water bottles from polyethylene terephthalate, 86% of which are landfilled or incinerated.

So good luck! I will post updates to see how I'm doing and you are more than welcome to share your progress.

Besides this months challenge I'd also like to tell you a few ways to recycle your bottled water jugs. We have a few 1 gallon jugs because we mix our formula and oatmeal with that. We use our jugs during the rainy season and fill them with sand to hold down or cover the dog house and other things that might fly away when it's windy. We also send them to get recycled. During Halloween we used them as pumpkins, my five year old had a blast with the paint! So don't just let them pile up (like we do sometimes), get to Reducing, Reusing and Recycling!
