If you’re reading this, chances are very high that your home has at least one — and maybe more! — magic appliance that produces clean water suitable for drinking. That’s one reason to avoid paying for bottled water.
Another reason? There’s a good chance the water you’re buying at the supermarket was bottled in California, a state currently enduring a severe drought.
You want better water? Buy a Zero filter. SRSLY. Stop buying bottled if possible. You need water with you? Get reusable acrylic or glass water bottles (wrapped in a silicon sleeve) and fill it up from your filter pitcher. SAVE MONEY, SAVE MY STATE
Our drinking water sources are not only being put into the bottles and shipped outside of California but there is a severe amount of water waste that happens just during the bottling process to clean the plastic bottles before filling.
Make the switch! Drink reusable tap water. You’ll be fine with the extra minerals.
Trains are cool. Buildings are important. But here at This Big City we think people are the best thing about cities. That’s why we’ve spent the last five years sharing stories from urban communities across the globe. The communities painting bike infrastructure, turning streets into parklets, organizing family activities, starting urban farms, and standing up for pedestrian rights. And we want to do more.
