How much money are you wasting, while abroad, buying water bottles?
In average, the price of a bottle of water is going from a minimum of 1,50 to a maximum of 4,50 euro.
While exploring a new city, your water consumption is generally higher than when you’re home. So basically, you can easily spend more than 5 euro/day just for water. Crazy, right? In a trip of a week, you will spend more than 40 euro.
Is money not your problem? Well, at least you should know that 80 grams (0,08Kg) are the quantity of CO2 released into the atmosphere for the production of a single-use plastic bottle. Don’t worry, I’m not proposing you to give up water.
My suggestion is to bring with you a refillable water bottle.
Indeed, the most expensive place where to buy a bottle of water is an airport. People doesn’t know that most of the times airports are provided with internal water fountains, so you could just fill up your water bottle at the fountain for free. It means 3-4 euro saved every time you’re flying. (Around cities is even easier to find public fountains)
Moreover, you’ll stop polluting the cities with your empty plastic bottles!
If you are looking for a nice looking and eco-friendly water bottle, my suggestion is:
