Resource reduction is a key element of sustainability. Reducing our impact on the earth is the first step towards protecting it, and an easy way to use less is to opt against single-use plastic water bottles. If your family is concerned about their impact on the planet, but wants great tasting water, try switching to a Brita Filtration system.

To get a sense of the difference you can make, consider that by switching to a Brita system, you can prevent up to 1,800 single-use plastic bottles per year from entering local landfills. A Brita can reduce your carbon footprint too. Using a Brita to filter water produces up to 4x less CO2 than drinking bottled water.

But Brita isn’t just looking to households to make a difference. They are making big changes of their own to help reduce waste, including updated pitchers that use less plastic, packaging improvements and filter recycling programs. Brita is working to minimize plastic waste while still delivering the same great tasting Brita water that people have come to trust.
