Bagging the Brita

You've swapped your gallon water jug bottles for the reusable Brita Filter. Now What? How do you get rid of your filters? Currently there is no way to refill or recycle Brita filter cartridges in North America. There may be a solution in the future...

Take Back The Filter is a campaign to ask Clorox (owner of Brita) to come up with a sustainable solution for the tons and tons of filters we go through each year. Visit their site, takebackthefilter.org and take these actions: send them your filters! sign the petition, write a letter, and spread the word.

What a great thing the power of suggestion is.
