What is a faucet filter?
Three different green alternatives
- Faucet Filter
- Water Pitcher
- Replacement Filters
How will each alternative affect the environment and the house?
- Environment: By using a filter for a year , it will get rid of thousands of plastic water bottles.
- House: The filter will intercept:
- Pharmaceuticals (antibiotics, mood stabilizers,and hormones)
- Industrial pollutants
- Microbial cysts (animal feces)
- Environment: Some filters can be recycled when done using.
- House: A filter cost 3 cents per liter instead of 44 cents per liter for bottled water.
- Environment: It will save you from buying a whole new faucet filter every time it needs a replacement.
- House: They are cheap!
How will this be used in my house project?
I will put the faucet filter on the faucet in the sink, along with the replacement filters.
