My childhood, was spent growing up secluded, in the woods, getting in tune with nature and wildlife.
Thus the start of my being into ecology, wanting to protect nature and wildlife.
I flinch at the thought of buying bottled/jug water, in essence some of it is just filtered tap water.
The plastic bottles and/or jugs, depending upon what size of “bottled” water that was bought, is filling our landfills, polluting our woods, hiking trails, streams, creeks, ponds, lakes, seas and oceans, it breaks my heart. The wildlife suffer and so do we, as water is a necessity for life.
Not everyone recycles those disposal plastic bottles/jugs of water.
There is a Recycle Room, in the basement of this apartment complex where I live, in a tony neighborhood.
Three times a week, I dump my bags full of cardboard boxes, paper and plastic jars/bottles, into the recycle containers, in the Recycle Room.
I have been wanting a Brita Water Filter Pitcher, for my new kitchen. I wanted it to be sleek and functional, since filtering your own tap water, should be fun!
Fell in love with this $79.99 Brita Water Filter Pitcher, on Jet. Com. I got it for $33.88! I saved $36.11!
Wait! There’s more! I signed onto Brita.Com, to get a water filter replacement reminder…They offer Brita Rewards! All you have to do is to buy a Brita water filter bottle/pitcher and upload your online receipt or store receipt, for points to use!
So I signed up for Brita Rewards. I now have 212 points, after Brita sent me an email giving me 200 points, for my Brita Water Filter Pitcher purchase! They give you surveys and other things, including recycling your water filters, to earn more points!
Score! I checked the prices on Amazon on the Brita hard body water filter bottles…$21.00 each, retail price!
Why pay $42.00 for 2 Brita hard body water filter bottles, when I can get them FREE, using my Brita Rewards points? I made a profit, recouping the cost of buying my new water filter pitcher, at $33.88! A $8.12 profit!
