I just received a comment on my Eco Friendly Stores in Toronto post from the proprietors at Green’s Your Colour. For those of you not familiar with Green’s Your Colour, they are purveyors of reusable water bottles.
To this day, many people are still drinking water out of plastic bottles and are paying an exorbitant amount for the water, which does not go through the stringent regulations that most city tap water goes through. Watch the documentary Tapped for more information on the bottled water industry.
In any case, one small way you can help the environment is to use a reusable water bottle. Green’s Your Colour is one place to get these reusable water bottles. They also have some pretty funky accessories to go along with their water bottles, such as a tea strainer and a pop up straw lid.
Be sure to check out their website for more information and pricing on the products. And the people from Green’s Your Colour that contacted me mentioned that they would be updating their list of brick & mortar retailers that carry their products very soon, so stay tuned for that.
