H20 bottles and the Gym
Are you still bringing plastic water bottle to the gym every day? Worse, are you throwing it away in the trash on the way out? It’s time to move to a reusable bottle. Preferably one that is not plastic to avoid toxic BPA chemicals leaching into your H2O.
Bottled water has become the indispensable prop in our lives and our culture. It starts the day in lunch boxes; it goes to every meeting, it’s in our cubicles at work; in the cup holder of the treadmill at the gym or beside our yoga mat during a hot yoga class.
How can it be that Canadians have become so skeptical about their water that we are buying it and paying more than we do for gasoline?
Are we such a wealthy nation that we can import water all the way across the planet from countries like France and Fiji? I personally cannot believe that French water is better than Canadian water.
Klean Kanteen water bottles are made from stainless steel and can be reused over and over again. For a large selection of both brands, as well as others, you can also visit http://www.reusablebags.com. Another option is to keep a Brita water filter in your fridge and then fill a reusable water bottle to take with you to the gym or your next workout.
If you are still not fully converted at least bring your plastic bottle home and recycle it instead of throwing it away.
Why not make the same commitment of improving our own health and fitness to that of our planet’s health, as every bottle thrown out will spend a lifetime and more in a landfill.
