#9 Don't buy bottled water or soda

I was just going to write an entry on not drinking bottled water, but realized it can make a huge difference in your consumption/waste, so I added it to the "list". I carry a re-usable water bottle, it is easy to do.



We have a filter for those in the house that prefer it,but I just take mine straight from the tap (the filter sits in the fridge and gets too cold for my liking).

There are numerous reasons to not buy bottled water. Perhaps rather than try to list them all myself, I can let someone else do it:

The Story of Bottled Water

We don't buy soda very often in our household, mostly because it is loaded with high-fructose corn syrup, but also because it is just all around crap. I do drink a soda once in a while, but I usually regret it, much like when I give in and get McDonald's food.

If I want something sweet, I'll make a cup of coffee with raw sugar added or have a glass of juice.
