Our Mayor, Greg Nickels has just launched a “drink up” campaign. Urging Seattleittes to stop buying bottled water. Apparently, 49% of the bottles end up in the landfills.
Granted, I recycle my water bottles, but it go me thinking… I love drinking from plastic bottles. Don’t know why. I know the the environmental repercussions, I know plastic leaches. I have a Sigg. I could have a glass of water in the house and not drink it all day, but if I have a water bottle, I might fill it more than a few times from my Britta.
Domino magazine did a blurb on these glass bottles. I loved the look, but the pretentious price tag disgusted me. So my search began for the perfect water bottle-that was glass.
Enter Ikea. Once again they took care of my child for an hour so I could spend money. For a whole $1.99×2 I have my water bottles. Thanks Ikea! I am now happily hydrated. Now if they could only make minis for making the lime liquer I saw in Martha Stewart.
Any one know of a glass water filtration pitcher?
