  • We have some on hand, but we use a reverse osmosis filter, so we use Camelbak and Nalgene bottles. We recycle plastic bottles when we do use them, and put the money in an account for our son.

  • reuse them for drinks in the car or fill them with water and let them freeze to be used as ice packs to keep drinks cold in summer.

  • No. Bottled water just produces more trash that we don't need. My philosophy is that my planet isn't disposable, things I use shouldn't be either. I am lucky to live somewhere where the water is clean (and tasty) out of the tap.

  • We throw our empty bottles into the recycling box and put it out for pick up every week.

  • we do stock it, and we recycle the bottles... the ladies like to play with them in their kiddy pool, sand box, and in the bath... once they are "worn out' we toss them in the bin.
