Give bottled water the boot.

If the lure of saving money and reducing waste hasnât urged you to kick your bottled water addiction yet, maybe this will. Drinking bottled water instead of tap water can prevent you from getting the fluoride necessary to protect your teeth from decay! Most bottled water doesnât contain fluoride, a mineral that occurs naturally in nature and is added to many municipal water supplies as a cost-effective way to combat dental decay in large populations. A reusable water bottle is a cheap and easy way to stay hydrated on the go, and protect those teeth! To encourage use of reusable bottles, the online community TapItWater.com provides a searchable listing of businesses that will happily refill empty reusable bottles for free. Find a fill-up spot in your community at www.TapItWater.com.
