Fill up your glass at home rather than pouring your money down the drain. Using an at home filter can help keep water tasting great. Not sure if your tap water is safe? Contact your local water company or visit EWG’s Tap Water database.
Say no to single-use altogether and carry your reusable bottle with you wherever you go. Going reusable not only decreases your waste footprint, it also saves you from spending money on disposable bottles when you’re on the go.
ALUMINUM. Where do we begin? Did you know nearly 75% of aluminum ever produced is still in use today? Meanwhile, 91% of plastic waste has never been recycled.

Aluminum cans are 100% recyclable. The material from recycled cans can be used to create new cans or other recyclable aluminum products, like a bicycle. This both reduces the need for new aluminum, as well as the amount of waste in landfills.

Unlike plastic, aluminum cans are infinitely recyclable. Aluminum can be recycled an infinite number of times without any loss of quality. Glass and plastic are typically “down-cycled” into less valuable products which ultimately end up in the natural environment.

And as if there weren’t enough reasons, when recycled, an aluminum can can be turned into a new can in as little as 60 days.
Filtered Filling Options
If you don’t have access to clean tap water there are many options for filtering your water at home and on the go.

Whether it’s a filtered water pitcher, a refrigerator dispenser, or a filter on your faucet, you can easily access clean, cold water in the comfort of your own kitchen without resorting to single-use plastic. So say goodbye to those 24-packs of single-use plastic and reduce your waste at home.

Not at home? No worries. Whether you’re in the office, at the airport, or running errands, hydration stations are one easy way to refill your reusable.

A Lonely Whale experience to end single-use plastic water bottles.

The Museum of Plastic is an educational experience that inspires visitors to question how you hydrate and join the #hydratelike movement.

The experience includes a number of exhibits that illuminate the realities of the very thing we aim to eliminate : single-use plastic water bottles.

Prepare to learn the history of these plastic pariahs, interact with the cold hard facts, and discover the more sustainable alternatives.

This week, stop by and make your pledge to no longer use single-use plastic water bottles. Choose your alternative! Maybe a reusable such as a S’well bottle, or aluminum such as the refreshing Ever and Ever. With your help, we can leave plastic in the past, only to be talked about in museums (like ours) and history books.
