How to say goodbye to bottled water

brita-water-filterLast month I did a step further towards sustainability by saying goodbye to bottled water as I bought a Brita water filter. I could have went straight to tap water but concerns over the plumbing of our old house prevented me to do so.

Doing so enables to avoid massive oil consumption for both the plastic bottle and the transport. It also brings substantial savings as it costs less than 1.5€ per week to drink filtered water.

Water filters bring all these advantages. So buy one and start saving money right away. For more reasons to do so, please check out 7 Reasons Not to Drink Bottled Water at Verda Vivo.

Random wisdom

You develop an instant global consciousness, a people orientation, an intense dissatisfaction with the state of the world, and a compulsion to do something about it. From out there on the moon, international politics look so petty. You want to grab a politician by the scruff of the neck and drag him a quarter of a million miles out and say, ‘Look at that, you son of a bitch.
