our pledge to stop drinking bottled water

SHARE THIS

Brita Longlast Pitcher2,000 plastic water bottles are used every second in the US. Let that sink in. Drinking water is really the ultimate healthy choice, yet it is one that is trashing our planet. Plastic water bottles take 450 years to decompose and by 2050, there will be more plastic than fish in the ocean.

Thinking about the health of our planet can be overwhelming. What can one small person do the make an impact on our giant Earth? Well, you’d be surprised! Switching to a filtered-water pitcher helps us replace up to 1,800 single-use plastic water bottles per year! So, we have made the plan to ditch plastic water bottles by switching to the Brita Longlast Pitcher!  Not only does it reduce plastic waste, it also reduces 99% of Lead plus Mercury, Chlorine, Benzene and more, making for better tasting water.

Drinking Brita water means we are protecting our planet, drinking better water AND we’re saving money. Not sure you’re ready to switch? Here are a few more alarming stats:

  • Enough plastic to fill a dump truck ends up in oceans every minute.
  • We use enough plastic water bottles to circle the earth 330 times.
  • We spend $13 billion on bottled water each year.

It even has a gauge on the top of the pitcher to remind me when it’s time to replace the filter. Plus you can buy both the pitcher and the filters are Target, which is SUPER convenient since I’m there every other day anyways. ;)

Live #BetterWithBrita with me! With the help of Brita, I’m ditching bottled water as a step towards reducing plastic waste. Learn more about Brita Longlast and find out how to get it here.

  • Well we don’t have a Nordstrom near us, but we do have an Aldi. Most of their summer items are on clearance and we scored this sweet pool for $7. Winner, winner. 🦄☀️ #blaireandben

  • This summer hasn’t really felt like summer yet. 🤨 So when we have an 85° day we make the most out of it with a trip to the pool! How’d you spend your Sunday Funday? #blaireandben
  • another day, another doctors appointment for someone in our crew. today it’s Ben. he was up overnight saying his ear hurt — a double ear infection for him. luckily the kid loves taking medicine and hasn’t let his ears get him down! as long as he’s up moving around they’re fine, but the second he lays down... 😭😭😭. hoping our poor buddy is feeling better tomorrow. do you feel like you need a frequent flier card for your pediatrician? just me? okay. #blaireandben #itsfinewerefine

  • It is definitely bittersweet to leave the house where we brought both of these babies home. But we are excited for our next chapter as a family of five! #rainbowbaby #blaireandben

  • Last night was our first night in the new house. 👏🏻 We still have lots of stuff to bring from the old house and then lots of cleaning over there before the final walk through and closing next Monday. Then we can focus on getting this house unpacked and organized. But first, I would like a nap. 😴 #blaireandben #happilytristahome

  • This sums up our Sunday. After driving around like crazy people to go to three parties yesterday, today was lazy and included movies, popcorn, long naps, quick trick or treat at the mall and then spaghetti pizza. And I might be eating my kids candy on the couch right now. 😍 How was your weekend? #blaireandben
  • Childhood... drinking a frosty in your teepee. what. a. life. We had a slow weekend. Literally vegged out at home 95% of the time and it was marvelous.  #blaireandben
