Back to School Buyer’s Guide – College Edition

It’s mid-August, which means that summer is nearly over and school is almost in session. For college students who live on campus the transition from the comfort of home to the dorm room can be quite difficult. The transition is also difficult for parents who have to make sure that their young scholars are prepared for life on their own. While it’s important to remember essentials like soap, toothpaste, towels, bed sheets, and clothes, here at Filters Fast we’ve compiled a list of back-to-school items that you may not have thought of or even anticipated.

1. Brita Pitcher “Slim Model” Water Filtration System
