Have a read!!!

I’m so sick of plastic water bottles, are you? Lugging it home from the supermarket, bottles all over the house and always an endless pile of plastic water bottles to go in the recycling. There must be a better way surely?

There seems generally an increased motivation to curb plastic waste and boost recycling possibly after the Blue Planet II series highlighted the threat of ocean pollution and showed footage of wildlife eating plastic. Did you see it? Gosh it was shocking. Recently I also met a guy on a plane (sounds dodgy – but it wasn’t) He had a business that removed plastic from the ocean and he was manufacturing mens swimwear from waste plastic water bottles! Genius!!

Nevermind the stats, the damage to the environment etc plastic plastic plastic – I’m so sick of it! So where to start with the war on plastic? For me it just has to be water bottles! Where to start? I did a little research and this is what I found out and what I chose. Now I don’t buy water anymore – get in! So I thought I’d share this with you!


So just how do you make tap water taste good? With charcoal that’s how! Yes, an ancient Japanese tradition apparently:

Minerals in, chemicals out! I tried it and now I’m converted.

(The science: The huge surface area of activated charcoal gives it countless bonding sites. When certain chemicals pass next to the carbon surface, they attach to the surface and are trapped. Activated charcoal is good at trapping other carbon-based impurities (“organic” chemicals), as well as things like chlorine. Source: How stuff works)


black + blum Eau Good Water Bottle with Charcoal Filter | Filter Water Using Traditional Japanese Binchotan Charcoal, Supercharge Your Hydration, Leak Proof BPA Free Bottle, it’s available in loads of colours. You can also buy a great glass elegant carafe which fits perfectly in the fridge (I bought one of these too and it’s transformed how I drink my water)

Here’s mine in the fridge (Note to self – must sort my fridge out!)


Plastic water bottles


And here’s my bottle I take out! I couldn’t handle a glass one! Too clumsy this is the next best thing in my view:

Plastic water bottles


So there’s my hack! Get rid of those flipping plastic water bottles – I have. What makes me laugh is that I’m more than happy to have a jug of tap water in a restaurant, yet I wasn’t drinking it from my own tap? Bizarre! Well now I am and it’s filtered with charcoal it tastes good!

Loads of you have been asking so here’s the links to just the Charcoal sticks, the 3 pack and the single. Remember each one lasts 6M!

So there’s my little water hack! What do you do, are you like me and sick to death of those plastic water bottles? Do you have a favourite drinking vessel? If so let me know in the comments below, I do love your comments

So I have solved 3 things for myself:

1. Buying water – Booooooo

2. Carrying water home- Booooo

3. No more Plastic Water Bottles! – Hurrah


Thanks Cx
