WFMW: No more plastic water bottles
But not only was that a pain, it was also wasteful and didn't promote our new attempt to be very green. And we're very into being green in this house. So what's a careful girl to do about keeping track of her water intake? Thankfully there is a simple answer that keeps me from using a plethora of plastic bottles every day.
When my daughter was sick recently, she wanted gatorade. I noted that the gatorade bottle with the sports top is exactly the size bottle I needed for keeping track of my water, and it had a convenient sports top that enabled me to take water with me in the car, to meetings, and even to bed at night. Voila! Problem solved.
She drank the gatorade from cup, I rinsed out the bottle and now I fill it twice a day and that's my water intake, measured and without adding any plastic to our recycling site. Plus, no more bottles rattling about in the back of the car. This really works well for me!
Sorry about the weird photo. It was the only one I could find of this wonderful sports bottle! Stumble It! JBlog Me
