Seychelle filtered travel water bottles are reusable. Instead of throwing away a sports water bottle after every use, you can refill your sports bottle with regular tap water, and have clean, great-tasting filtered water anywhere you go! No chemicals, no waiting, and no mess. The travel water bottles filter the water as you drink it.
Most people purchase bottled water because they believe that it is purer than tap water. But is it?
City tap water can have no confirmed E. coli or fecal coliform bacteria (bacteria that are indications of possible contamination by fecal matter). FDA bottled water rules include no such prohibition (a certain amount of any type of coliform bacteria is allowed in bottled water).
Repeated high levels of bacteria (i.e., "heterotrophic-plate-count" bacteria) in tap water combined with a lack of disinfectant can trigger a violation for cities but not for water bottlers.
Most cities using surface water have had to test for cryptosporidium or giardia, two common water pathogens that can cause diarrhea and other intestinal problems (or more serious problems in vulnerable people), yet bottled water companies don't have to do this.
Nearly one in four of the waters tested (23 of the 103 waters, or 22 percent) violated strict applicable state (California) limits for bottled water in at least one sample, most commonly for arsenic or certain cancer-causing man-made ("synthetic") organic compounds.

If the questionable quality of the bottled water you are drinking is not enough to cause alarm, then look at how much money you are spending buying bottled water. As you know, water prices fluctuate greatly, depending on brand, packaging design and place of purchase:
Many sources recommend that we drink at least eight (8) 8 oz. glasses of water every day ( gallon per day). This equals 3.5 gallons of water every week. Most people drink much more than this. In one week, you can assume you drink:
If the quality of the bottled water or the cost of the water still doesn't motivate you to switch to a filtered water bottle, then consider this: Plastic bottle waste has tripled since 1995.
Wasting is the flip side of recycling, said CRI research director Jenny Gitlitz. While PET (Polyethylene Terephthalate) plastic bottle sales are going through the roof and recycling volumes stagnate, the quantity of plastic bottles being littered, landfilled, or incinerated is climbing. Gitlitz said the 3.2 billion pounds of PET bottles wasted in 2002 was almost three times the amount wasted in 1995. Source: Mindfully.org
Health-conscious Americans are consuming water from disposable plastic bottles at a rate of more than 70 million bottles each day . . . More than 60 million plastic bottles end up in landfills and incinerators every day a total of about 22 billion last year. Six times as many plastic water bottles were thrown away in the US in 2004 as in 1997. From sea to shining sea, plastic water bottles are clogging the streams and tributaries that feed into Americas rivers. The bottles that are not contained by fallen trees and other debris along our inland waterways are floating out into the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. From there they are finding their way to the shores of island communities and coastal countries that are themselves only just beginning to experience the problems associated with plastic beverage bottle waste.
