Water Bottles

Water is good for us! We should drink lots of pure water... I do! The only thing was I was drinking it out of plastic water bottles. I was going through a case of water every week. To be honest with you I wasn't exactly worried about the plastic I was producing because... "I recycle"! My decision to look into a different way was more on the economic level... it adds up! I would go through a case of bottled water, then I would buy water at the corner store, then we would go on a jaunt and I would buy 5 more bottles at the corner store.... well, all of that was equivalent to about $600 a year. After a few years that adds up to quite a bit! Make sure you read all the way to the bottom to see what I did.

Here is the average life of a Water Bottle:

These are now my water bottles: I fill the tea kettle and set these clear, 16 oz. EZ Cap Beer Bottles in the sink and pour the boiling water into them and seal them. They are clean for relatively soon use, they are not sterilized for long term storage.
