Dispose of water bottles

Today, as I mentioned before, is earth day, but everyday not just today, we try to be environmentally conscious as much as we can. One of the things we've started doing, which is also a big savings on our budget, is to stop buying bottled water. We all bring our lunches for school and we've stopped bringing bottled juices or sodas a long time ago, so it was bottled water for us. But then we realized, as we take containers full of empty plastic bottles out on the sidewalk for recycling, how much plastics we are using up and throwing away!

So my husband installed water filter under our sink and installed bar faucets to dispense the filtered water. From the tap, we can now fill re-usable water bottles for our daily dose of water! Aside from the label on the bottle, we haven't been able to notice a difference in taste, really.
