Here’s my doh! moment of the day. I’m getting ready for a trip next week and looking for ways to make the flight more eco-friendly (and just less of a drag for me). So I was delighted to stumble upon an EnviroMom post which, in its brilliance, realized something I had completely overlooked: just because you can’t bring water through airport security doesn’t mean you can’t bring a water bottle. EnviroMom Heather advises bringing an empty and just filling it up at a fountain after security.
This is why moms rule. (Why didn’t I think of this, instead of spending 4 bucks/flight for airport bottled water?) This also gives me a chance to use my reusable, compostable “corn bottle” with the screw-in filter, which I can fill at any tap. (I know I should embrace unfiltered water, but I’m not there yet.) While I don't think I’ll buy another corn bottle now that I’ve read about the problems in diverting food crops for other purposes, since I already have it I want to get some use out of it. This will also double as my workout water bottle at the hotel gym. One week, no throwaway plastic bottles at all.
Today’s mitzvah: Give a shout-out to EnviroMom, who has other practical travel tips here.
