A smashing plastic bottle success story in 2009 January 4, 2010

an update on the pledge we (Walrath family of 6) took in Oct. 2009 to never drink from a plastic bottle again……

With the exception of one water bottle at a high school football game, WE DID IT!!!!!!  We travelled 8 out of the 10 weekends, attended countless ice hockey games, a karate tournament, a road trip, and we drank only one plastic bottle of water.

I am bragging, I have every right to do so, but mostly my point is that this is possible. We did it by planning a little bit more (fridge always stacked with stainless steel bottles or my favorite, glass aquasana bottles) and every once in a while we suffered a little bit and felt reeeally thirsty (that only happens once or twice until we remembered to never leave home without water) and we occasionally bought a glass bottle of ice tea or juice BUT overall, we just did it.

I enter 2010 so relieved that this doesn’t even have to be a part of my new year’s resolutions. Our family is done with the plastic bottle for good!
