You Can Finally Recycle Your Old Brita Pitcher Filters

Recycle Your Brita Pitcher Filters
Brita has long promoted its pitcher water filters as an eco-friendly alternative to bottled water, and with good reason. A single pitcher filter can replace 300 standard bottles of water, which greatly reduces the amount of plastic water bottles that are not recycled.

Unfortunately, there is no option to recycle the Brita pitcher filters, which are encased in No. 5 plastics, a plastic not recycled in most communities.
Until now.

Due in large part to online campaigns like Take Back The Filter, Brita has partnered with Preserve’s Gimme 5 program to take back and recycle 100 percent of the filter casings. Preserve will use the recycled filters in its line of eco-friendly household goods.
Through the program, which started in January of 2009, consumers can drop off their old Brita filters at participating Whole Foods Markets across the country. You can also choose to mail your filters to Preserve.

Filters Fast carries several Brita pitchers and Brita replacement cartridges.

If April showers bring May flowers, what does chlorinated water bring?

Rainshow'r Gard'n Gro
With Spring on its way, many are getting ready to cultivate their home gardens. Homegrown fruits and vegetables are often less expensive and healthier than their store-bought counterparts, as they are usually not grown with the same harmful pesticides and chemicals.
But this attempt at a more organic and healthier approach to gardening can be counterintuitive if you are still watering your garden with your garden hose. The chlorine found in your home’s water can be considered a toxic substance when it is used to water your garden, as chlorine reacts negatively with many natural compounds.
The Rainshow’r Gard’n Gro Garden Filter System is a completely non-toxic de-chlorinator that promotes healthy plant nutrition and growth in your garden by eliminating the harsh toxic effects of chlorinated water. The Gard’n Gro system attaches to your spigot and removes 85% of the chlorine from your garden hose water. It also preserves helpful microorganisms found in the soil, and will not harm ladybugs, lacewings and other beneficial nematodes that naturally ward off pest populations.
If you are into hydroponic gardening, consider the Rainshow’r Green Knight Hydroponic Dechlorinator, which promotes hydroponic plant growth by removing the toxic effects of chlorine from garden hose water by using Quartz crystals to aid plants in the absorption of nutrients. Like the Gard’n Gro, it screws directly onto your garden hose and removes 85-90 percent of Free Available Chlorine (FAC).
