If you’ve been living under a rock, let us fill you in. Drinking from plastic bottles is dangerous for you. Sheryl Crowe thinks it gave her breast cancer. Here, read this if you need more convincing : recent report about the dangers of toxins from using plastic bottles.
Besides the health aspect, did you know that 1,500 plastic bottles are used every second in the United States? Or that it requires 17 million barrels of oil to produce plastic bottles each year? According to the EPA, 32 million tons of plastic waste were generated in 2011 alone. So, there’s another reason to stop buying plastic water bottles.
You still want/need to filter your water so may we suggest the strikingly handsome Soma, a hybrid water filer/carafe that looks great on the dinner table and works wonders for the body and skin.
It’s an eco-friendly water filter, using 100% biodegradable materials (coconut shells, silk & a plant-based casing) in chic shatter proof glass. By signing up for the subscription plan, they deliver the filters right to your door so you never run out.
And since you’ve been snoozing under that boulder, you probably also didn’t know that 800 million people don’t have access to clean and safe drinking water. So we love that every filter you buy from Soma includes a donation to a water charity. Through their efforts, 100 families now have access to clean water through projects funded by the Soma community.
