One of our pet hates is spending money on bottled water.
Yet, in some parts of the world it is the only sensible thing to do. Anybody who has ever experienced an upset holiday tummy knows what a ghastly experience that is. It’s bad enough at home but in a hotel, or when actually travelling – it doesn’t bear thinking about.
Unfortunately, however, the throwaway plastic bottles are also a problem. Millions each year end up in landfills, our oceans, or litter the countryside causing potential harm to wildlife – as well as looking so awful.
Whilst we have not yet tried the 75cl Water-to-Go bottle it will be coming with us on summer excursions. It will be especially useful when we are flying – we always get so dehydrated when travelling. Our plan is to take the empty bottle through the security checks and refill the bottle in the airside washrooms, or from any other hotel or washroom tap come to that, before getting on trains or coaches – or just going out for the day.
Water-to-Go bottle has a filter system in it which can be used anywhere turning tap, stream, river or rainwater into drinking water –evidently it purifies and remove over 99.9% of all contaminants including bacteria and chlorine.Its filter technology was developed for NASA to eliminate viruses, bacteria and bad smells and taste from water, whilst still retaining beneficial minerals such as sodium and magnesium.
The filter system is in a 75cl re-usable plastic bottle and costs £24.95. The Water-to-Go bottle can be put in a dishwasher. The filter (packs of two for £14.95) will each last around three months and individually purify a total of 200 litres water.
The money we save on bottled water will no doubt go towards a nice glass of wine or two! www.watertogo.eu
