I’ve always tried to do my best to reduce, reuse, and recycle. It’s only been in the last couple of years that I’ve really gotten serious about doing research, evaluating my current lifestyle, and making changes that will help preserve our environment. I have to admit that there are some things I just don’t want to let go of…like my bottled water. I grew up on bottled water. It’s a habit…a way of life. When we were dating, my husband used to tease me about not going anywhere without my bottle of water.
With recent concerns regarding chemical leaching and the ginormous amount of oil required to make plastic water bottles comes Primo, a company who has designed an environmentally-friendly bottle made from plants rather than crude oil. If you can believe it, we could save a million or a couple of hundred million gallons of gas a year if we all used natural plastics derived from plants. So how do they do it? Watch the video here!
I was first introduced to Primo at BlogHer earlier this summer. Being green-minded I was very interested in comparing the taste of their water versus my Costco water. I have to say that the water tasted really good…most likely you won’t notice any difference between the bottled water you’re drinking now and Primo’s water. I’ll be completely honest with you. I don’t like tap water and I know for certain that I won’t be carrying around a reusable water bottle all day hoping I come across a place to fill up. I have never liked the taste of tap water and I like the convenience of having a water bottle at hand at all times. I love that the bottles are BPA-free and recyclable…that means it’s good for you and the planet!
