If anyone uses Brita water pitchers and would like to recycle their cartridges instead of tossing them, please see this site. Take Back The Filter

Brita promotes saving the environment by using their pitchers/tap filtration systems instead of buying bottled water. They do recycle the cartridges in Europe, but not in the US.

I live in Cary. I started a small collection of used cartridges. If you are interested in recycling, but not interested in mailing to the campaign in CA, you may drop the cartridges off to me. Just DM me.

Thanks! Rachel

Thanks for the 'filter' less information. We really like our Brita water, you can definitely taste the difference or is that its a tasteless difference. I don't know water tasting levels....

We have been using a water service for spring water but I am trimming our budget
and wondered if the filtered Brita water taste like the spring water. We have well water
that has something in it that is safe but has a taste to it.

There's always some kind of taste to water, whether it's spring water, individually bottled water or tap water. It takes some time to get used to the taste (before it'll feel normal).

^^That's true. There are some bottled waters that have such a..well "soft" taste that to me they taste like drinking someone else's spit. Ick.

Oh, and thanks for the info OP :-)

I'm mailing my used cartridges within the week. Did anyone happen to keep theirs on the side? Wanna give them to me to include with my mailing? If so, direct message me.

It great that u have taken upon urself to do this and I appreciate ur efforts, however, I was just wondering if the law requires that filters be recycle rather than just tossing in the trash. Since there is not I will just toss it until it is required by law to recycle.
