Getting All Your Water In

This Sparked Me!

Trying to remember to drink 64+ oz of water a day was too much for me to count. So now, in the morning, I pack 2-3 bottles of 24 oz Arrowhead for work. I don't have to count each cup but know when I finish all 3 bottles, I have had the correct amount. emoticon emoticon

    Plastic bottles suck for the environment we all know it. But I seem to have bad luck with anything else. Nalgenes, the wide mouth kind, I tend to not drink from them because by the time I get half way through the water is warm and gross. Plus I make a mess of myself because as my husband says, I have a drinking problem. It ends up all over my shirt. And they started to smell funky after a while no matter what I did to wash them. I tried the smaller bottles with the straw and flip top but despite their anti-microbial properties they got gross too. So what I do is buy a 20 oz. bottle of water or juice every week and half or so and just keep refilling that with filtered water from my fridge or from work. It prevents an excessive amount of bottles and I'm recycling the bottle multiple times. Plus it makes me get up out of my desk chair at work to refill it. I also have a tendency to lose things so if I lose a $1.29 plastic bottle vs a $9 Nalgene I'm not as mad at myself. emoticon

    That's great that you are getting your water, but do you know what those plastic bottles are doing to the environment?

    I drink much more water when its in a bottle and its easier to track how much I have drank. To save on plastic and to save money I use one bottle per day but refill it all day long then recycle at the end of the day. I find I drink more than double the amount in a day doing this. :)
