Because We Never Stop Evolving As Parents or As People

Conserve is the Word Worldess Wednesday




I often see these types of signs at the Chicago Botanic Gardens when we visit. I’ve always believed in carrying our own water bottles rather than doling out money for municipal water and wasting plastic. But I was shocked to learn it takes 3 liters of fresh water to produce every liter of bottled water.

  1. May we be good stewards of all He has entrusted to us!

  2. Before the production and sale of bottled water, I never would have dreamed that I’d actually PAY for water.

  3. Interesting. Never thought of it that way either!

  4. Well, that is new information and something to really get you thinking. Wow.
    though I had read something about those hand dryers spreading germs. Not sure how accurate it is.

  5. Love it. Thanks for sharing.

  6. What a difference we could all make!

  7. I always carry a fresh topped up plastic water bottle.
    Thanks for hosting ;D

  8. I love signs that inform us like this. We always have water bottles with us to fill. We are fortunate that we live in a country where we don’t have to worry about unsafe water. Hopefully more people will catch on with signs like these.

    • You’re right, Jennifer. We are crazy lucky to not have to worry about unsafe drinking water. I’m always amazed at the people who complain about their tap water, like it’s contaminated. We live right next to Lake Michigan so we use a filter to remove a little bit of the taste but otherwise it’s perfect!

  9. Wow! I did not know that water was wasted making bottled water. Good lesson!

  10. I am shocked, too, to learn 3 litres of water is required to produce 1 litre of bottled water!

  11. That is quite a shocking fact!

  12. There are lots of simple things we can do that really don’t change our lives all that drastically.

  13. Wow, that really puts it in perspective! Definitely pinning this onto my Reduce Reuse Recylcle board for people to see!

  14. Our tap water tastes horrible even filtered. We do purchase bottle water but we don’t go through a ton of it.

    • Hey, Christy. Have you ever tried the under-the-sink filters? Those refrigerator filters are terrible. We used Franke filters which we installed into the water flow under our sink and it saved us from tasting that horrible Chicago water. Just something to think about…. and way less expensive than buying water.
