One small step in going green

Unless you’ve been living in a cave for the last year or two, you’ve probably heard about the evils of bottled water (all that wasted plastic) and how even plastic reusable water bottles, including a Nalgene bottle that I have,  can leak Bisphenol A (BPA.)

I decided to do my part for the environment and my health (though since I already eat junk food, how much this will help me is debatable…) I decided to ditch plastic and got this stainless steel bottle. Obviously I don’t want to leave it in my car during the summer (which I currently do with a plastic travel mug), but this is a minor thing.
