Months ago, Recycla talked about Brita being “not so eco” here in the United States. Well, Brita has officially “greened” itself here at home so you can start recycling their filters. As of January, you can take your used filters to any Whole Foods store. If you don’t live near one, you can send them to Preserve, a company mentioned here before, that recycles #5 plastics into toothbrushes and other items. Preserve asks that you send the filters in used cardboard boxes by ground shipping to this address:
Preserve Gimme 5
823 NYS Rte 13
Cortland NY 13045
Drinking filtered tap water instead of bottled spring water is now even more eco-friendly!
