Best Self Filtering Water Bottles for Green Healthy Lifestyles


Best Self Filtering Water Bottles

It is almost inconceivable that more than 60 million water bottles end up in landfills every single day.  It can take one bottle over 400 years to degrade.

I do believe that there will be a time when we look back and say, ‘Oh yeah, that was the plastic age. Look what we did to ourselves.’ And to be honest, I think the plastic footprint is a greater risk to the health of our environment, to the people here and to the marine species for sure, than the carbon footprint. – Bill Francis, president of the Algalita Marine Research Foundation

So we have all become painfully aware of the issues of BPAs (Bisphenol A), chemicals that leach off plastic containers and contaminate the food or liquid inside and cause problems from hormonal issues, migraines, obesity, birth defects, and even cancer.  Add to that the reality that bottled water costs a fortune and many brands have been proven to be loaded with toxins.  A 2013 German study found that bottled water is contaminated with nearly 25,000 different chemicals on average, after examining 18 different brands.

The desire for good clean water that won’t cause mountains of plastic in landfills has been a huge challenge.  Here’s some of the top choices for BPA free and self-filtering water bottles for solving this problem.  Consumers spend upwards of $15 billion on disposable bottled water. At an average cost of $1.50 per bottle. Using a self-filtering reusable water bottle is the equivalent of $450.00 worth of disposable bottled water.

Since the filter takes up space, look for a bottle with a good capacity. Some filtered water bottles hold as little as ten ounces of water, while the larger sizes hold up to 24 ounces.  You also want one that will be durable, convenient to hold or carry, dishwasher safe and looks good too!  So which are the best self filtering water bottles on the market today?
