5 Reasons Why You Should Stop Buying Bottled Water/ Running in a Skirt
Hi friends!

 

I’m a huge advocate for drinking lots of water.  I feel 100% times more energized and healthy when I chug away.  Beyond how I feel, I firmly believe that drinking water is critical to lasting health and all of our bodies simply function better with it.

 

Basically water is my jam. <— so much cheesy lately, I know

 

I literally carry my water bottle everywhere.  Even to brunch!  The hubs jokes it’s like an extension of my body.  Where I go — it goes.

 

5 Reasons Why You Should Stop Buying Bottled Water/ Running in a Skirt
I have always preferred to use my own water bottle and refill it with filtered water at my house versus buying bottled water.
5 Reasons Why You Should Stop Buying Bottled Water/ Running in a Skirt
There are so many reasons I skip buying bottled water.  Here are just a few…

5 Reasons Why You Should Stop Buying Bottled Water

Environment

Americans purchase half a billion bottles of water per week.  Very few of those bottles are actually recycled and most end up in the landfill or worse yet our oceans.  It is too much waste for our planet to handle.  And due to how long it takes plastic to decay, those plastic bottles will be around for hundreds of years.

My reusable water bottle holds 32 ounces of water and I drink it twice a day.  It would take me 4-6 plastic bottles A DAY to drink that much using disposable bottles.  That’s around 1,500 bottles a year that aren’t going into the dump just from me!

I try hard to make good environmental decisions, and this is one simple way I can make a difference.

Taste

While there are some serious issues with tap water in a few cities and isolated areas around the country (In which case I totally understand buying bottled water,) most tap water is good.  If you have any specific concerns you can check with your city water authority or have your water tested.

I’ve drank tap water my entire life.  Filtered tap water usually tastes just as good or better than bottled water.  Try a blind taste test.  I can almost guarantee you can’t tell a difference or you pick the water filtered at home.

Using GE Water Filters is the perfect way to get the healthiest water at home.  Their filters remove harmful contaminants that may be in your tap water and helps improve the taste.  They also remove minerals and hard deposits for fresher, clearer water.

I have an in-fridge water filter, but GE Appliances also has filters for your entire house, a single sink or even for your Keurig.  There is a good option for everyone.  The money you save on all those disposable bottles can easily go towards a nice quality, easy to use filter.

Health

It is so much easier to drink a lot of water during the day if you have easy access to it.  Buying a BIG water bottle and carrying it with me is key to me actually keeping up with drinking my water.  If I was constantly going through small, flimsy plastic bottles there is no way I would keep up. This water bottle helps me stay healthy.

Money

Bottled water costs 300 to 2000 times more than tap water.  That markup is insane.  I wouldn’t put up with that kind of gouging with any other type of purchase, so why this?

5 Reasons Why You Should Stop Buying Bottled Water/ Running in a Skirt 

 

Buying a good quality GE water filter is very affordable.  One refrigerator filter costs between $45-$55 dollars and lasts 6 months.  When you consider how much you save from buying bottled water, it’s the best deal out there.

 Convenience

We are all busy.  I know I don’t have time to buy and lug around giant cases of water.  Sometimes those cases are even too heavy for me to pick up. It is much more convenient to get my water at home and keep it with me.  Plus there is nothing simpler than filling up with filtered water from my GE Water Filter already built into my fridge!

National Water Day

This post is in honor of National Water Day, which is today!  Drink up and consider buying a GE Water Filter the next time you are at the store.

    I am a big fan of a refillable water bottle and I panic a little when I travel for business about access to additional water to refill my bottle. New plan of action includes refillable water bottle and a gallon jug of water for travel. Ah..ha! https://twitter.com/TheFamilyGould/status/724940331645571072

    I keep a big glass near the sink / refrigerator, and I keep water icy cold in the refrigerator. I totally gave up diet soda, and having this refreshingly cold water is wonderful!

    Well, to be honest, there are no filters GE currently offers that I would use because I don’t have a fancy fridge or coffee maker and can’t afford a whole house unit. I prefer to use things like Brita pitchers/fridge tanks for this very reason. That said, if money were no object, I would LOVE to have a whole house reverse osmosis unit! 😀

When I am not in an absolute rush or some other ordeal I like to use my refillable bottle- I hate to waste!

    There’s also the health issue of drinking water from plastic that isn’t safe, which most packaged water bottles fall victim to. I have a refillable water bottle dedicated to my office and one dedicated to take everywhere with me. At home, I just use a glass 🙂 I can’t remember the last time I bought prepackaged water!

    As a distance runner I drink a lot of water, over a gallon a day. Steering away from bottled water has never been very difficult for me, especially from a cost standpoint. We have a GE refrigerator with an integrated filtration system. The filters aren’t cheap but compared to bottled water its a huge savings.

    I always carry around a big Nalgene with me, whether I’m hiking or in the office 🙂 About the only time I ever buy bottled water is if I’m treating myself to some sparkling water like San Pellegrino since you just can’t replicate that at home. Otherwise it’s filtered water from the tap for me!

    I used to use a Brita filter pitcher but stopped several years ago (still have the pitcher but no filters). At work we have water service.

    Our younger son is constantly saying that certain brands of bottled water have a funny taste. I suppose that he has always known this better than most people.

    Hydration not only helps us feel good on the inside, but helps us maintain and look good on the outside too. If you can’t seem to just drink plain old water, there are some great and healthy flavor adds nowadays to help your water to be more palatable. I go both ways…..

    I rarely buy bottled water–but I do let my tap water sit in my freezer or refrigerator and that bad taste seems to evaporate.

    We also have a GE water filter in our fridge. My only complaint is that it takes forever to fill up. There has to be a way to make it faster.I just don’t know how. I thk it’s great that most airports even have filtered water now so it’s nice to fill up your water bottle rather than the water fountain.

    Love this post 🙂 Honestly, I feel guilty when I buy bottled water. I’ll buy fruit water when guests come over because all we drink is water and I feel like I have to offer something with flavor and I always feel bad because it’s another wasteful water bottle. We are HUGE fans of hydro flask bottles. We have five bottles that we keep in the fridge and I do not go anywhere without one. I love them because they come in different sizes and colors and keep your water cold ALL day long. I have a water filter on the fridge door and a brita in the fridge. Love me a water bottle 🙂

    I am guilty of buying bottled water. Yes I do carry a water bottle with me, I have one I love it keeps water ice cold for 24 hours even in the sun. I use it often. But when I travel, like last week I for some reason can’t stand the taste of many hotel waters (It’s probably all in my head) so yeah I bought a case of bottled water to refill my waterbottle with.
    I haven’t ever thought about buying a water filter, actually that is something that I really should look into for camping see if I can get one to attach to the trailer sink tap.
