Brenda Knight (author of Random Acts of Kindness) would love it if we could use reusable water bottles instead of collecting plastic.
Give up the bottled water. Please? Not only is it ridiculously priced and horrifically wasteful, but also fails to offer any benefit over tap water. Many brands draw their water from a municipal supply- as in, the same water that comes out of your tap for free. Additionally, bottled water companies aren’t held to the same stringent standards as public waterworks. And, adding final insult to injury, plastic bottles can often leach harmful chemicals into the water and then languish in landfills for thousands of years if not properly recycled. It’s better for everyone involved if you carry a jar of reusable water bottle to fill up instead. Drinking from a Mason jar is the ultimate in chic, too!
