TIP: Save $1400 a year...drink tap water

TIP: You can save $1400 a year by dumping your bottled water habit in favor of tap water, according to an article on The Daily Green.

A couple years ago I installed a water filter in my kitchen, so now we drink filtered water straight from the tap. It's a great way to get better tasting water at a lower cost, and without the plastic that seeps into bottled water.

If you're concerned about the quality of tap water vs. bottled, here's an interesting article that makes the case for city tap water being better than water - the standards that city water is held to is much higher than water bottling plants. Check it out:

  1. Kathy C, training and compliance manager for Hawthorne tells me she also has a water filter in her house and she loves it! It tastes great and now her and her husband save bundles by not buying bottles. Plus there's the energy to recycle bottles, and the environmental cost of producing the bottles in the first place and decomposing them in our landfills.
