My boyfriend and I are trying our best to recycle everything and to stop using so much stuff. So, we are now trying really hard not to buy bottled water. We got a Brita filter for Christmas and have been refilling water bottles or using Nalgene bottles for our daily intake of H2O.
We had to replace the filter today and I discovered that Brita filters can't be recycled here in the U.S. Chlorox owns Brita in the U.S. and they haven't started a recycling program here like they have in Europe.
There is a petition online to get them to recycle these plastic things. Check it out.
