Our New Favorite Way To Drink Water - Put Filters First!

This post is sponsored by Brita but the content and opinions expressed here are my own.

Miami heat is no joke, so I try my best to keep my family hydrated!

And the best source of hydration is water. I don’t know about you but I’m picky when it comes to our drinking water. A lot of companies have weird tasting water, and not to mention, they contribute so much plastic and waste to our already dying world. Yikes!

But let me come clean. I’m ashamed to admit that before moving to Miami, we were consuming hundreds of single-use water bottles every month! Heck, we used to drink at least 10 bottles a day — THAT’S A LOT! Not gonna lie; these water bottles are convenient, but if you really think about the aftermath of using these bottles, you’re left with random plastic bottles all over your house that you have to clean up, and recycling them takes more than just dumping them in the recycling bin because not all plastics are the same. Drinking from these water bottles is actually work. So is it really convenient? I don’t think so!

We made a decision to finally stop this nonsense when we moved to our new home, and boy, does it feel great to NOT see random plastic bottles all over our apartment! We’ve made the switch, and if you want to find out our new favorite way to drink water then keep reading! #PutFiltersFirst

Did you guess BRITA? :)

When we first arrived here in Miami, our first order of business was to get a water filtering system that works for us. Brita was the only brand that popped into my mind because they’re definitely superior when it comes to the “filtered” life. We got ourselves the Brita Extra Large 18 Cup Ultramax Water Dispenser and Filter and we LOVE IT!!! So when the opportunity to work with Brita arose, I was beyond excited because my family love, fully trust and support this brand!

After having the water at home all figured out, my husband and I talked about needing a water bottle to take with us whenever we go out for work or fun; after all, Miami is a playground for creatives like us. Right now, we’re pretty much entering the peak of summer which means that it’s extremely hot here, and we need to stay hydrated. And the one thing that we cannot leave the house without is our Brita Filtering Bottle. In this day and age of “putting filters on everything”, why not start filtering our water first?


  • First of all, they’re aesthetically pleasing. I’m sure this doesn’t matter to most people, but for content creators like myself, looks are everything, and Brita’s water bottles are very instagrammable which makes them a huge YES in my book! Comes in 6 different colors!

  • By choosing to use our Brita Filtering Bottle, we help replace over 1,800 single-use plastic bottles a year! Imagine that for a second! Wow.

  • The filter that comes with the bottle lasts for 2 months. I love that we don’t have to go to the store every week to buy cases of water bottles anymore! 😂

  • It filters as you drink, so I can refill our water bottle anywhere! Any water is filtered water with our Brita Filtering Bottle.

  • It’s durable, doesn’t leak, BPA-free, and reduces chlorine taste and odor; perfect for moms who have thirsty babies. :)

  • The little strap on the lid makes it super easy to carry the bottle around.

As a mommy to a toddler, and as a full-time content creator, my daily life can be so unpredictable. Work and play almost always clash together, but the one thing that is constant is our Brita Filtering Bottle. This bottle doesn’t just provide cleaner and great-tasting water. It promotes a better lifestyle, and helps the earth by putting filters first! So happy to have made the switch!

How about you? How are you choosing to put filters in your life? What steps are you taking towards a more sustainable lifestyle?

I would love to read them and maybe we can all do them together! :)
