Stop using plastic water bottles… NOW!

You caught me Urbanites!

You know we all do it.

Ditching our reusable water botttle!

Why is it so hard to remember to bring your own water bottle from home?

I always find myself buying a plastic water bottle from the store because

“My water is room temperature”

“I don’t like the taste of my water”

or just plain and simple

“Where is my bottle?”

 

WE ALL HAVE EXCUSES

Here is what helps me….

 

1. Engrave these pictures into you mind.

These pictures just hurt my heart.

2. Think facts. 

If you are a fact person, just remember how many bottles end up in our landfills.

3. Think Longterm

My current obsession is my Hydro Flask. The next time you are buying a bottle, buy one that you will always WANT to reach for. I have had mine for 6 months now and one, they are a great investment but also I love it. I don’t leave the house without it. Bonus: It stays cold all day!

4. Get a water filter that you like.

Waterever your choice is, zero or brita, get a water filter in your fridge. You will always have clean fresh water on demand. You can also keep it in your fridge so that you can have COLD water whenever.

 

5. Keep your bottle in the fridge overnight.

This was such a game changer for me. I leave the FULL bottle of water in the fridge overnight so it can get nice and cold. In the morning before I leave all I have to do is grab and go. No filling up necessary. No more “room temp water” excuses.

 

Stay Green Urbanites!
