There are several downsides to a reliance on bottled water. Firstly, there’s the environmental impact of generating plastic bottles that can take hundreds of years to degrade. During that time, they go to landfill or end up clogging the oceans and endangering sea life.

You may not like the taste of your tap water, or you may be worried about impurities in it – with an easy-to-use drinking filter you can improve the taste of your water, weed out impurities and take a huge step forward in going plastic-free within your home.
