going green: water bottles

Making an organic cupcake is okay and all, but there is more I can be doing, much more.  And with all of the news about buying bottled water, I knew I had to do better.

Trouble was, I was on the hunt for a particular water filtration system for quite some time, and finally found it on sale ($25) at Target in Sacramento.

I love this Pur Water Filtration System because it fits in my refrigerator nicely, holds enough water to last my family an entire day, and my kids can help themselves!

Here is our family of water bottles.  We are especially fond of the nalgene water bottles.

I would love to invest in some sigg water bottles, but at $20 bucks a pop they are a bit more extravagant then I’m willing to spend at the moment.

Mom tip:  I considered buying my kids a kid sized water bottle, don’t bother.  My son took his water bottle to the pool today and drank almost 20 ounces!  The small size just wouldn’t have been enough.  And water bottles come in pretty colors too, satisfying the most discriminating 5 year olds!

So I’m wondering if you are still using single-serve plastic water bottles or if you have made the switch to a water filtration system and some eco-friendly water bottles?
