1. CHILL BEFORE YOU FILL
Keep that water bottle in the fridge instead of running tap water until it’s cold. Then before you toss it, check the bottom for its recycle code. If it’s a 1 or 2 chances are that you can put it in one of your curbside recycle bins. Even better, don’t buy bottled water. Buy a filtered pitcher and fill your reusable sports bottle.
2. MAKE YOUR OWN SMOOTHIES
It’s fun and cheap. And it’s even better if you use locally grown fruit from the farmer’s market. So blend up a little ice, a banana, 1 cup of your favorite berry fruit like strawberries or blueberries and 1 cup of yogurt for a delicious and nutritious smoothie that is better than any store-bought version.
