Time For Change: Saving Money and Reducing My Eco-Footprint

It’s not unusual for me to leave the house before 7 a.m. and not return again until after 7 p.m. My days tend to be long and spent bouncing between the gym and the yoga studio. When I leave the house in the morning it’s all I can do to have a bag packed with everything I’ll need for the day and breakfast supplies. I will admit that I have gotten in a bad habit lately of picking up coffee at Starbucks instead of making it at home and using a to-go mug. Another very (shamefully!) bad habit I’ve gotten into is not carrying a water bottle with me. Rather, I buy bottled water on the go and refill it here and there.

10.16yoga Photographic evidence…my yoga mat with a Starbucks cup and a water bottle. This is something that has been weighing on my conscious from both an environmental responsibility and budget standpoint. Let’s say that my morning cup of coffee is usually $2 and a bottle of water averages $1.50…if I bought three of each every week (and that’s a conservative estimate), that adds up to a whopping $550. And from an environmental angle, here are some facts about bottled water from the Clean Air Council.

  • At least 90 percent of the price of a bottle of water is for things other than the water itself, like bottling, packaging, shipping and marketing.
  • 44 percent of ‘purified’ bottled water sold in the U.S. started out as municipal water.
  • 827,000 to 1.3 million tons of plastic PET water bottles were produced in the U.S. in 2006, requiring the energy equivalent of 50 million barrels of oil. 76.5 percent of these bottles ended up in landfills.

So, where am I going with this? Clearly, it’s time for a change in my routine. A couple of weeks ago I gave my coffee pot a thorough cleaning inside and out and recommitted to making coffee at home again in the mornings and I dug my reusable water bottles out of the cabinets.
v
10.22everdrop3  One of the catalysts for this change in behavior was the receiving Whirlpool® Water’s EveryDrop™ Water Filter to test and review. When I thought about the budget and environmental impact of my bad habits along with reading that just one of the EveryDrop Water Filter can prevent 450 plastic water bottles from going to the landfill, it was a no brainer. It’s hard to ignore cold hard facts.

10.22everydrop2  The EveryDrop Water Filter is a portable filtration system that can filter a gallon of water in just two minutes. It’s extremely easy to use. I am not “gadgety” and I had this thing out of the packaging and in use in no time. The instructions that come with the filter are simple to follow.

10.22filter  It truly is portable. As you can see in the photo above, the product fits in my hand. It also comes with a convenient travel case so that you can throw it in your gym bag, suitcase, car, desk, etc. You can also use it at home for things such as filling pitchers for the fridge and filtering water into your coffee maker. It comes with a filter that lasts for two months and an indicator for you to track what month you loaded the filter in so you can remember to change it.

10.22everdrop  The water that I filter from my EveryDrop Water Filter system tastes great and also provides me with peace of mind that I’m not only saving money but also taking steps to reduce my eco-footprint. If you want to learn more about Whirlpool Water’s EveryDrop portable water filtration system you can check out their website, Facebook page or Twitter feed.

    I love filtered water and that seems like an easy way to get filtered water when I’m not at home and away from my trusty Britta.

    Pam November 4, 2013, 8:04 am

    I too leave early from home, go, go, go and would find being able to fill my water bottle on the go would save me from lugging an ice chest with me everyday!

    Liz November 4, 2013, 8:05 am

    I used to always bring water from home when I had the water dispenser in my fridge. Since moving (and not having that option anymore) I keep buying water bottles since I don’t love the water from my tap (maybe it’s mental!).

  • 5
    Michele M November 4, 2013, 8:11 am

    What a great product. I never heard of it. This would prevent me from buying 3liters of bottled water a day at work, sine I don’t want to drink the tap water. ( we have known issues with it) 🙂

    Madeline @ Food Fitness and Family November 4, 2013, 8:15 am

    OOOOO – I carry my water bottle with me everywhere but hate drinking unfiltered water. This could be awesome for me!

  • 7
    Kelly November 4, 2013, 8:15 am

    Thats awesome! I would use it on the go, I have two little girls and don’t like to give them juice when we are out and about but sometimes that’s my only option. With the filter I could get water and filter it into their camelbacks! Great idea!

    Ashley N. November 4, 2013, 8:18 am

    I’d love to break my water bottle habit. I always stop and get a huge bottle and refill it at work but it’s just as easy to bring a reusable bottle!

    C. November 4, 2013, 8:18 am

    Good for you! I completely agree with the importance of sustainability. This is the first time I’ve heard of the Whirlpool Water EveryDrop Water Filter, but now I really want one 🙂 I tend not to drink enough water at work and I think having this around would be helpful (I have a traditional desk job as a contract lawyer). Great post!

  • 10
    Ashley November 4, 2013, 8:22 am

    As someone who travels a lot for work I have to remember to pack reusable water bottles ad fill them before I go. This would be great to toss in my bag and use on the go!

  • 11
    Holly November 4, 2013, 8:24 am

    I would use the WaterDrop every time I fill my reusable water bottle – something I do several times a day. Since I work from home, I could just leave the filter by the sink for easy use whenever I’d like.

  • 12
    Lesley November 4, 2013, 8:25 am

    I’m pretty good because luckily my office has a fancy water purifier system. But when I’m at home or on the go, it’s way too easy to buy a new water bottle here or there. I would mot benefit with the water filter around the house and when running errands!

    Emily B November 4, 2013, 8:28 am

    This would help me spend less money on plastic water bottles that seem to pile up in my home!

    I’m usually out and about with my daughter running errands or going to play dates, so this would be awesome!

  • 15
    Becca November 4, 2013, 8:41 am

    This filter would be perfect for me and my husband. We both carry our Nalgene bottles EVERYWHERE we go (we are even guilty of grabbing it as we run to the grocery store). It’s hard when you are traveling to find filtered water and I always feel so guilty about buying bottled water when I have my empty Nalgene just sitting beside me! The Whirlpool Filter would be a great solution!

  • 16
    Joy November 4, 2013, 8:44 am

    The filter would go with me everywhere because my reusable water bottle goes with me everywhere. I refuse to buy water because of all the plastic but there are always times when I run out of the water I carry with me and having a filter would allow me to get water from anywhere at anytime. This would be awesome!

    Thanks for the chance to win.

    Liz November 4, 2013, 8:45 am

    I always use my water pitcher with filter at home, but I work 7 a-7:30p as a nurse and have no way to filter my water while I am gone over 13 hours a day! This would come in so handy and be a great solution! I’ve never seen anything like it.

    Ang @ Nutty for Life November 4, 2013, 8:56 am

    I love the idea of a portable water filter! I used to have a Brita bottle, but then I got my new favorite water bottle from my internship and it doesn’t have a filter. I am always wary of filling it without purifying the water, but I do it anyway because I like the bottle better. This would be so useful for me!

  • 20
    Elise @ 9toFit.com November 4, 2013, 8:59 am

    One of my monthly goals is to start drinking water. I drink water when I workout but when the workout ends so doesn’t my water consumption. This would be a great way me to get into actually carrying a water bottle and drinking water for a change!

  • 21
    Stephanie November 4, 2013, 9:06 am

    This water filter wold be perfect for me. When I stay at my boyfriend’s house, I’m forced to drink unfiltered city tap water… yuck!

  • 22
    Jordan November 4, 2013, 9:12 am

    I also am always on the go and take water with me everywhere! I’m always up for trying new environmentally safe and budget friendly ideas in my routine!

  • 24
    Jenny November 4, 2013, 9:14 am

    Michelle November 4, 2013, 9:15 am

    I’m guilty of buying water bottles just because I’m running late and haven’t planned well for my day. I would love to be able to have something this easy to use so that I can also cut down on my daily waste.

  • 26
    Meghan November 4, 2013, 9:16 am

    This filter would be great for me due to its portability- I could carry it in my bag and could use it at work, the gym, when I’m out shopping, etc. It would certainly help me keep fresh water in my water bottle rather than end up buying a drink while I am out.

  • 27
    Patti November 4, 2013, 9:28 am

    Much like you I find myself away from home 12+ hours a day. And I have also been guilty of buying starbucks (my foursquare just informed me it’s been 5 weeks straight, a new record…) and forgetting my water bottle. Keeping the Whirlpool Water EveryDrop Water Filter in my gym bag or work bag along with a refillable bottle would certainly keep me accountable!

    I love that this filter is so portable! I work at two different elementary schools and there is nowhere for me to refill my water bottle (other than kiddie water fountains – ew), so this filter would definitely come in handy!

    At work they have plastic bottles of water for us to take and drink, but I find myself not drinking enough water at work because I’m feeling guilty (even though I recycle them!). This gadget will help me get my 8 cups a day, and feel good about it.

  • 32

  • 35
    Meghan N November 4, 2013, 9:42 am

    I would leave it in my gym bag to fill up my water bottle rather than hitting the vending machine for a bottled water! I hate the taste of the unfiltered water from the fountain…

  • 36
    Margaret November 4, 2013, 9:53 am

    Definitely an awesome tool. I often find myself without water at times during the day, and this would be a good motivator to have on hand and make sure i’m hydrating.

  • 37
    Amy November 4, 2013, 9:56 am

    I would love to try the water filter. I love that it’s so portable, so it would be great to take it to work and know that I’m getting healthy water! 🙂

  • 38
    Courtney November 4, 2013, 9:58 am

    I have three kids and we homeschool, so we’re always busy and on the go. I can’t count how many times we’ve caught ourselves out with our steel water bottles, but I have to buy a bottle of water to be able to fill them up, even though there are perfectly good faucets nearby. This would be GREAT to keep in the car for those situations.

  • 39
    Wendy November 4, 2013, 10:02 am

  • 45
    Kelsey November 4, 2013, 10:20 am

    Water is my beverage of choice not only for its health benefits but because I simply love the taste of it and how refreshed and energized I feel when I am properly hydrated. I drink roughly a gallon of water a day, if not more and if I had a Whirlpool® Water’s EveryDrop™ Water Filter, it would certainly get its use!

  • 46
    Bobbi November 4, 2013, 10:23 am

    I would LOVE to have this for work. We just have tap water to refill our bottles, so this would be a great addition to my day

  • 47
    Kasey Crochet November 4, 2013, 10:24 am

    I have a 70-mile commute to my job, and that’s one way! So, to say I’m in a hurry each morning to be at work on time, 7AM, is an understatement. This little filter would be awesome to carry in my gym bag! I really hope I win!

  • 48
    Britt November 4, 2013, 10:25 am

    I bring a water bottle with me everyday. A lot of times I fill it straight from the sink which sometimes tastes a little funky so this filter would be perfect for me!

  • 49
    Shari November 4, 2013, 10:28 am

    This is what I have been looking for. My home has well water and two water filters, but I am looking for something to make sure the water I am consuming is “good”. Thank you what a great giveaway.

    Katie Meier November 4, 2013, 10:28 am

    Working in college athletics, I am constantly on the go but HATE always taking the plastic water bottles provided at events…but I also hate refilling water bottles in bathroom sinks. This would be IDEAL to travel with!

  • 51
    Amy November 4, 2013, 10:29 am

    This would be perfect for me. I have multiple stainless steel water bottles that go EVERYWHERE with me…as evidenced by their many scratches and dents. I think it gives them more character. At work, I refill them using our fridge water and I know that filter does not get changed on schedule so I would definitely put this to get use.

  • 52
    Joanna November 4, 2013, 10:30 am

    That product looks great. Recently I’ve been meeting with a wellness coach who has really promoted drinking cleaner water. I work in an office, and the closest water source to me is tap water, which I’ve always been fine with. Using this product would improve my water quality daily!

  • 55
    Ally November 4, 2013, 10:53 am

    A portable filter is such a good idea! I work at a rock climbing gym, I would definitely use it at work. I have a litre water bottle with me, but I always need to refill at work and the water is terrible. Jen, good job holding yourself accountable for small things like your daily coffee and waters (because, really, they’re not small)!

  • 56
    Laura T. November 4, 2013, 11:01 am

  • 57

  • 58
    Jillian November 4, 2013, 11:38 am

    I’d use this all the time at home. At work, we have a water cooler so I fill my bottle up several times a day, but at home I drink tap and am not crazy about the taste. This is less of a pain that dealing with a Brita.

  • 59
    Brittany @ proteinandpumps November 4, 2013, 11:50 am

    I refill my camelbak all day long and often just use tap water so something like this would definitely come in handy.my boyfriend and I started refilling gallons if water at a local water company for just a quarter each instead of buying bottled water or new gallons every week for at home.

  • 60
    Whitney @ Pancakes and Tulips November 4, 2013, 11:55 am

    That would help me when I travel and the water is sometimes iffy!

  • 61
    tracy November 4, 2013, 12:10 pm

    I am embarrassed to say that we buy 2 cases of bottled water each week. That is a lot of plastic. This would not only save us money but help the environment. I could hook this up in the kitchen and use refillable bottles instead.

  • 62
    Lisa Brown November 4, 2013, 12:16 pm

    I wasn’t always the best at drinking water – let alone water from home. Once I got pregnant I really focused on drinking water and it’s a habit that has stuck with me for almost 3 years now. We also stopped buying bottled water in a way to save money and waste. I would love this to take with me so I didn’t have to pack so many of my own water bottles with me – especially if I run out of time in the mornings to make sure they are all filled.

  • 65
    Helen November 4, 2013, 12:24 pm

    I am never without my water bottle. I have two that I rotate and carry with me all day (work, gym, and around the house). This habit started while being a poor student, and then a poor wife of a law student. I never really think about the quality of the water I am filling my bottle up with, so the EveryDrop would be a great addition to my ever-handy water bottle!

  • 66

    Sand November 4, 2013, 2:16 pm

    As an active high school English teacher (yogi, marathoner, outdoor enthusiast!) it’s hard to keep track of my water intake during the day. Enter my battered, sticker-covered, trusted, and true Nalgene water bottles. Not only do these weathered bottles provide my students with great, often non sequitur conversation starters, (did you know the Denver Bicycle Cafe serves coffee AND craft beer!? Ms. M, what’s kale?) they allow me to monitor my water consumption as I teach (grade, conference, coach). The EveryDrop Portable Water Filter would be a far more perfect and efficient way to fill my reusable water bottle (and coffee maker…because this is also essential) throughout the day!

    Emily November 4, 2013, 3:39 pm

    Such a great idea! My office moved, and with that, no more water filtration system. Argh! I sit about 10 steps from the sink, which is what we now have to use to fill up our water (they did give us all reusable cups though!) I would definitely love to keep this at my desk- no doubt coworkers would try to take it. We’re all so upset they got rid of the filtered water.

    Jen – I totally agree with this post and it’s something that I think about regularly. I am pretty good at work – I have a reusable water bottle on my desk – but the weekends are another issue all together. I would love that Whirlpool system for at home on the weekends. Thanks for hosting a great giveaway and the awesome reminder post!

    As an active person who is currently sidelined by illness, this filter would really be awesome in keeping me on top of drinking enough water throughout the day. I’m on a host of medications now that require fluid intake and at the hospital every other day for appointments. I’d love to have a portable filter that could travel around with me instead of having to buy water bottles when I’m out.

  • 125
    taylor November 4, 2013, 11:18 pm

    I always use a reusable water bottle because I took part in a challenge a few years ago to not use a disposable bottle for a year. I am now around 3 years strong on that challenge! However, the water fountain at my work produces some nasty tasting water and it is not fun to drink. I wonder if a filter like that one would help with that issue?

    99% of mornings, just as all 3 of my kids are almost buckled in their car seats, at least 2 of them say, “Mom, we forgot to fill up our water bottles!” So, in I rush and have the decision to make–fill them up faster out of the tap or wait for the fridge filtered water. We seem to always be in a time-crunch so I usually use the tap water. I would LOVE to have this filter–it would be used constantly around our house!

    I have looked over this product on their website, and there are much better portable water filters on the market, including the filters that come as part of a water bottle. This water filter is only designed to remove chlorine and nothing else, while many other basic water filters will reduce iron, mercury, and other common impurities as well as a small amount of chemicals.

    So my mom is crazy about water bottle. She literally buys cases and cases of water bottles and I always end up taking a case home with me as I usually just drink from the tap and the bottles are a break from the awful chlorine taste of municipal water. I pretty much want an EveryDrop for my mom and one for myself with hopes of cutting down on this consumption of bottled water.

    This would be great while at the park or for my husband to take to work.

    This would be great to use at work so I don’t have to buy water from the vending machines.

    We are constantly on the go, so this would be great to use at places that have water fountains like my daughter’s taekwondo classes, the zoo, and her school!

    I could bring this to work and to school daily.

    I’d use it to filter my cats drinking water instead of using our RO filter water
