Drink Up!

Here’s my water tip for the week: buy a stainless steel water bottle and, whenever you leave the house for more than an hour, fill it with filtered water and take it with you. This will prevent you from buying a plastic bottle of water when you get thirsty — taking one more plastic bottle out of the recycling stream or landfill. Best of all, it will help keep you hydrated and healthy. (More about those nasty plastic bottles next week.)
