Water Tips

Now that I get my Free Newsletter from Ideal Bite, I thought I would share some of their tips and info on how anyone and everyone can help to protect our planet.

Time for some bottle therapy. It used to be practically a requirement for the eco-conscious urbanite to lug water in reusable hard-plastic bottles, but it turns out those bottles can leach toxins. Choose lined aluminum, stainless steel, or glass instead.

The Benefits
Health-consciousness. Polycarbonate plastic used in bottles by Nalgene and other companies leaches bisphenol-A, which is linked to birth defects, miscarriage, and prostate cancer.
Less waste. Plastic water bottles require 1.5 million barrels of oil each year to make.
Hydration. Experts recommend we drink six to seven glasses of H2O per day, so keep a bottle handy.
Hipster appeal. Metal and glass options now come in supercool colors and designs.
