Water bottles – unnecessary toxin

I was forwarded this PowerPoint presentation about plastic water bottles by a friend. http://surferswithoutborders.org/Water_Bottle_files/water-disaster.pps

We had already cut nearly all the plastic out of our lives and replaced them with glass containers. I recycled almost all of my plastic tupperware and drinking glasses, and we made a sweep through the fridge. Now even the mustard has a glass jar. 😉

We also installed water filters for drinking, cooking and showering. I found out that I am allergic/sensitive to manganese which is a mineral in our local water source. It was part of the problem causing my skin issues. Also, Jason wanted to eliminate the chlorine that comes from the tap water in our shower. The steam from the shower can cause lung issues and other irritation.
