Should We Buy Bottled Water?
I can't wait to hear what you guys think about the below video clip on bottled water below. Find out: Does it really taste better? Is it really cleaner or from higher quality sources? Or are we just getting screwed and paying more for nothing? And not only that, are we putting our health at risk from the BPA or other toxins in the plastic?
Will you ever buy bottled water again?
I wish I could say I never will. Even though I can't promise that, I can for sure say that just like with food, this is also a journey. I used to buy a 24-pack every week, but now I buy one every 6 months or so. And instead, get this, we refill our own water bottles from our tap! Crazy concept, huh? 🙂
What we use:
I have some glass bottles I refill, and I also got a whole bunch of BPA-free water bottles for the van so I don't have to worry about them breaking. They're wide-mouth so they go into the dishwasher easily. (And I never put anything hot in plastic, ever.) These go with us if we're exercising or off to one of the kids' sporting events.
Our water is filtered to get the Chlorine, Fluoride, and any pharmaceutical or other contaminants out, all with a reverse osmosis filter. But the problem with those is that they also filter out the much-needed minerals.
Since we got the RO before we knew better, now I add a drop or two of these mineral drops per glassful to our drinking water. (Except we forget a lot…)

Now watch this video and let me know your thoughts in the comments.
Do you filter your water? If so, what filter do you have? Do you supplement with mineral drops?
