If you’re shopping for an eco friendly water bottle, you might also consider a home purifier. Members of environmental groups around the country are making a conscious effort to drink more tap-water and buy less bottled, but the quality of our tap water is just not that good.
While there is no doubt that it is as good as what you find in most bottles that are for sale in the supermarket, it is still not as clean or good tasting as it could be. Most treatment facilities use chlorine or other chemical disinfectants, which are bad tasting and actually dehydrating. But, that’s not the worst part.The use of any kind of disinfectant creates byproducts. Known as THMs or DBPs, exposure to those byproducts increases our risk of cancer. Only a few of the home purifiers on the market remove THMs.
You can check by reading the product performance data for the purifier that you are about to buy.You can also request that they send you a copy of their certified product performance data. If they don’t have it, you might want to consider buying a different brand.

You have no doubt seen that some bottling companies claim to have switched to an eco friendly water bottle. There is no such thing.There are bottles that are lighter in weight and composed of less plastic. So, they create less of a burden on the environment than the regular sized bottles, but they still create a burden. All plastics do.
