I hate my Brita water pitcher so much I would rather destroy the planet with bottled water.
There, I said it.
A little background info: before we moved to New York, when we still lived in the suburbs and had access to a Costco, we bought a bulk pack of Brita filters. Twenty filters, in fact.
Let me do the math for you: 20 filters, being used at a rate of one every other month, means we bought over three years worth of filters.
Three years of cramming the pitcher into a sink to fill it, waiting for the water to filter through, cleaning the pitcher, dealing with the little carbon bits… and now that I have just put the very last new filter into it, I can finally say no more! I’ve had enough!
Some time between now and the end of January (when this filter will need to be replaced), I need to find a better water filter.
EDIT: Right now, I’m leaning towards this Aquasana model:
They’ve been the Consumer Digest Best Buy for water filters for the last four years in a row, and it appears to be the cheapest per gallon as well.
