The Great Debate Rages on between the benefits of bottled water vs. plastic water
There has long been a debate on the benefits of bottled water vs. filtered water which you can filter on your own, either through a Brita Filter, a PUR filter or some other system. For those of us who have made the switch away from bottled water to a filter were still left with the problem of what to do with the filter once it has lived out its useful life. Yes we have reduced our plastic use from all of the bottles we have saved by using a filter, but the filter itself is made of plastic.
Well the exciting news is that Recycline (www.recycline.com) now accepts No. 5 plastics along with Brita filters to recycle and make into new household products. They will also be partnering with Whole Foods to have drop off bins at some of their stores. If you don’t live near a Whole Foods that is participating you can also go directly to their webpage and print off a postage paid mailer to mail you No. 5 plastics and your Brita filters in to them.
Thanks to recycline for making green living a little bit easier!
