I love my new water bottle.

"Only through strictness do you find conversion."

All this eco-friendly stuff is so new and so foreign to me that I stumble along making lots of mistakes.  However, I'm learning that failures can lead to successes.

I went to a health store last weekend and bought an expensive glass water bottle.  I love it.  The water tastes better than it does in plastic.  No leached chemicals and it can be reused and/or recycled forever.  Still, the cost bugged me.  I showed a friend at school and she said, "Why didn't you buy one of those?" pointing to a water bottle with some trendy brand name on it that had been left on the counter days ago.  I checked, and sure enough, it was glass.  I scooped it up to take home. 

Now I have two bottles - one expensive and one free, but I never would have discovered the second one if I had not made the commitment to stop buying plastic, disposable ones in the first place.

    Where did you buy your bottles?

  2. I got the firs one at a natural foods co-op. I've seen similar things online too. The other can be found at regular grocery stores.

  3. Hi, Jaki! You made a really great choice with that ecofriendly water bottle. And it seems like you really have a good intention in keeping our environment clean. While that water bottle may be expensive, at least you now something to store clean drinking water that you can use for a long period of time. Thank you for sharing that! :)
