I was never a huge bottled water consumer. But there was a time when I didn’t really think too much about buying pre-packaged water. Now I think a lot (some might say, a bit too much).
It took a while for me to get in the habit of bringing a reusable water bottle with me wherever I went (and packing one with my child). But like most things, once you do it a bunch of times, it becomes habit.
Now we always bring reusable water bottles with us on car trips, camping trips, or to sporting events and fast-food places (and yay! we’ve never been scolded for filling up our bottles at the fountain drink dispenser)—or pretty much anywhere we might get thirsty. And while there are a few exceptions, most places you go will have access to clean, safe drinking water so you can get quick refills too—for free!
