Seeing as how it is Earth Day – and that happens to be where I live – I thought that I would provide a tip today that benefits both you and the world around you.
Drinking more water is one of the best and easiest things that we can all do to increase our health. And we as Americans have been doing a great job. So much so that carrying a water bottle has become a bit of a status symbol. Certain brands of bottled water will even make you rich & famous. Unfortunately it still won’t land you Brad Pitt.
Really, the only down side is that they all come in these little plastic bottles that tend to add up. But what’s the alternative? Drinking tap water?
I don’t know if my fear of the San Diego tap water is well founded or an effective marketing ploy, but I do know that I won’t be experimenting with it any time soon. Instead, I choose to filter my drinking water. My filter of choice is the Aquasana AQ-4000 but there are plenty to chose from. At $0.09/gallon it’s considerably less than even the most economical bottled water. So you can not only expect to hear about this on Earth Day, but also on Save-a-Ton-of-$ Day, Look-@-How-Nice-My-Skin-Looks Day, and Why-Yes-I-Have-Lost-Weight Day.
