Above, the King of Random shares a technique for how to start a fire with a
bottle of water.

Are you paying 240 a year for your bottled water habit?
Bottled water is as bad for your pocketbook as it is for your
health. It can easily cost a few hundred dollars a year for your
family if you're taking bottled water to school or work or buying
bottled water at restaurants.

There are microplastics in your bottled water and here's what
you can do about it

  • Get a water filter. There is a value to storing bottled water
    for an emergency, but for your health you shouldn't drink
    bottled water on a daily basis. Kick the bottled water habit
    and start filtering your water for everyday use. At home you
    can get a Big Berkey water filter, and for the office a mini
    Berkey travel system

  • Limit your use of plastic sports bottles. Use glass or
    stainless steel for your water bottle, instead of plastic if
    possible. Sports bottles are convenient, so if you have one
    be sure it's a BPA-free water bottle, and be sure to replace it
    when it gets worn.

  • Remember that plastic gets into your soda bottles too.
    The chemical bisphenol A (BPA) and phthalates found in
    plastic bottles is perhaps more pronounced in soda bottles
    than it is in water. The BPA and phthalates from plastic
    bottles are endocrine disruptors ~ these chemicals leach into
    the soda, enter the body and are toxic! If you choose to
    drink soda, be sure to drink from a glass bottle.

Learn how to start a fire with a plastic bottle so that you're
prepared in an emergency! If you should find yourself without a
match, you'll be ready both with a source of hydration and fire for
warmth. A bottle of water can concentrate the sun's energy and
now you know how.
