Today is the 20th anniversary of Earth Day!
So in honor of our beloved planet, here is my tip on a way you can stay lean and green.
Let's talk water - I am an recovering bottled water drinker. In the beginning, the only way I could get my required 8 glasses of water was to drink a particular tasty brand named bottled water. I guess I could give them a plug - I love you Aquafina! Anyway, not to even touch on the fact that it was burning a hole in my pocket book, I can't count the bottles that I drank and then threw away. You heard me...*hanging my head* - "Threw Away". I live in a town that is not recycle friendly. We don't have cute recepticals on the curb that I can conveniently throw my plastics into. So after some thinking on the subject, I purchased a brita filter. I love you Brita! Now I carry my water in a BPA friendly washable water bottle. And I have a spare water bottle given to me by my FP4H leader that I use at my office. (Thankfully we have filter water available)
So there is my tip - go out and buy a brita filter, they are amazing. And make sure your bottle is BPA friendly, we want to love our planet, not junk it up.
