I am forever getting nagged at for carrying around a half crushed, scrunched up, nasty looking plastic bottle around with me. I have a terrible habit of buying bottles of mineral water that are designed to be used only once, and instead refilling them over and over again for convenience. I like to drink a lot of water and usually aim to drink 2 litres a day where possible. This helps me to feel healthy and also to keep my skin looking healthy and hydrated.
I have finally taken the plunge and bought a BPA free water bottle which is what my boyfriend has been telling me for a while now! Using disposable plastic water bottles for more than a week is said to put your health at risk due to the nasty chemicals from the plastic eventually breaking of into the water, via the process of erosion. When browsing the shelves of my supermarket I decided why not buy a Brita Filter -Fill & Go bottle!
This bottle did not cost much more than an average good quality, BPA Free water bottle. The bottle retails at £7 and is available online or from many well known retailers. It comes with 4 filters to start with but you can buy these filters for a very reasonable price online. The bottle itself is very sturdy and the cap is very secure to prevent any unwanted spillages! I also think it looks quite sleek and I'm feel confident in knowing that the Brita Filter design is helping to filter out the unwanted nasties from the large amount of tap water I drink.
I hope this post has been of use, I would highly recommend getting one if you are in need of a new water bottle!
