Save Green with a Filtrete High Performance Drinking Water System

If you have been following our blog, one of our contributor’s has been working on very diligently working on going plastic free in her family’s consumption.

The average American consumes about 167 disposable plastic bottles of water per yer, for grand total of over 50 billion.  In 2008 bottle water consumption in the US was estimated at 8.7 billion gallons.  Americans drink enough bottled water to require over 1.5 million barrels of oil to produce those bottles.  The US has the highest rate of consumption over any other country.

One very basic way each of us can save money and also help our environmental impact is by kicking our plastic bottled water to the curb!

For so many of us we have some sort of water filtration system.  I personally love having one!  I can’t imagine going without.  It allows me to filter out not just the flavors that the water may contain but also so many of the chemicals that are found in our water.

While the water filtration system I currently have is awesome, I would love to have one that actually is connected also to our main water supply so if I forget to refill our filter we still can drink good water from our tap!

Filtrete High Performance Drinking Water System from 3M Is the Answer!

  • This is a new do-it-yourself system that can easily be installed by almost any handyman.   Dad can exercise his hobby as handyman with easy installation, no-mess/no-tools filter changes, and better protection for the home’s plumbing and appliances.
  • As a Mom, I can feel better about reducing microbial cysts, lead, and select pharmaceuticals, among others, from the family’s drinking water.
  • Your family can drink better tasting water thanks to the Maximum Filtration level and easy-to-turn-on dedicated faucet.

If you are looking for a way to save money, reduce wastes and provide superior drinking water, turn down the next bottled water for a reusable bottle of water from a Filtrete 3M filter.

    This system sounds amazing. I’m so sick of our method. We have water delivered and the cooler that we have in our kitchen is so large, plus my 18-month old loves pulling the knob down and getting all wet. I hate it.

      Yeah, that sounds like something my kids would do! Ours sits on the counter and has a spout but I have to refill it. It does an awesome job but I would love something like this too as it would make it so nice to just turn on the tap.

    Hubby and I will have to look into this further. I am seriously the world’s biggest water snob! I hate tap water! This would definitely save us some money instead of going and refilling 5 gallon water jugs at the Water and Ice Store!

      Even though we are way out in the country, we still have rural water so it is very treated. I do not drink from the tap either. I think this would be a great addition as well! I guess I am a water snob too :)
