Here’s one idea.

Stop drinking bottled water, whenever practical.

Replace bottled water with your own reusable bottle and water you filter at home. Many people like Nalgene bottles. It takes 2,000 times more energy to produce a bottle of water than it does to produce tap water.69% of bottled water containers end up in the trash and not in a recycling container. In 2008, the U.S. used enough plastic water bottles to stretch around the Earth more than 190 times.

If your tap water’s not great, use a Brita filter to get great-tasting water without so much waste. The average Brita pitcher filters 240 gallons of water a year for about 19 cents a day. To get the same amount  from bottled water would require 1,818 16.9 ounce water bottles a year

Imagine how much you’d save when you stop drinking bottled water.
