      It's insane how much pollution water bottles create. I recently blogged about how actually making your water bottles uses up more water than the bottle itself will hold

      Actually, that's one of the reasons bottled water is so expensive. Water is pretty cheap, especially since most bottled water companies don't seem to be using anything other than purified tap water. But all the materials that go into the bottle increase the price. And even if it was recycled there's still a lot of water and energy they use.

      That's why I figure it's just a good idea to buy a decent quality water bottle (non-toxic) and a good water filter. At first they seemed more expensive but in the end it's actually comparatively cheap.
