Want to Go Green and Learn How to Live Bottled Water Free? Meet The Water Filter Lady, Laura Newton and Get Her Top 3 Tips to Stop Using Bottled Water
The Water Filter Lady, AKA Laura Newton, knows a thing or two about safe, pure, clean water. Not a huge fan of bottled water, she can help anyone learn how to live bottled water free. Laura is dedicated to providing consumers with better water, better health, and a better lifestyle.
Laura tells me that the good news is that drinking bottled water is not as popular as it once was, "These days there is an awareness by consumers that bottled water is not the best thing to purchase for many reasons."
Today's consumers have a true desire to live more sustainably. Those environmental concerns, along with health concerns, spurred by social media and news reports of chemicals leaching out of the bottles and into the water, are now becoming commonplace discussions among consumers.

To build on consumer awareness of the negative side of bottled water, Laura suggests that consumers watch the mind-blowing movie Tapped.
"Tapped examines the role of the bottled water industry and its effects on our health, climate change, pollution, and our reliance on oil. The documentary is well structured and presents an overwhelming amount of evidence which will change the way anyone thinks about bottled and municipal water." - Laura Newton, The Water Filter Lady
If Watching the Movie Tapped Doesn't Get You Ready to Live Bottled Water Free, Here are The Water Filter Lady's Top 3 Reasons to Stop Using Bottled Water:
- Plastic bottles take up to 1000 years to bio-degrade! The Container Recycling Institute says that plastic water bottles are disposed of (not recycled) at the rate of 30 million a day. 88% of empty plastic water bottles in the United States are not recycled.
- Save Money. Bottled water is expensive. If you are
still drinking bottled water because your tap water is unsafe, the
solution could be as simple as purchasing a quality home water filter.

- Bottled water is no safer than filtered tap water. Some bottled water is simply tap water bottled and sold. A study conducted by the Goethe University at Frankfurt found that a high percentage of bottled water, contained in plastic containers, were polluted with estrogenic chemicals. Although some of the bottled water contained in glass were found polluted with chemicals as well, the researchers believe some of the contamination in the plastic containers may have come from the plastic containers themselves.
