We’re starting off simple. Bring and use your reusable glass or stainless steel water bottle. Let’s ditch the plastic and make sure that your water is as healthy as can be for you and the planet. Plastic water bottles can leach unwanted chemicals into the water inside and yeah, we’ve seen enough depressing videos about single-use bottles polluting our oceans, so let's do this! We know it's hard to remember sometimes, so this is your extra motivation. Show us where you are taking or refilling your water bottles this week and remember to tag @because_health and #BHchallenge .

They are great, but what if you already have a reusable plastic bottle? Do you have to toss it? We've got some good news! You don't have to throw it away or relegate it to sitting at the back of the cabinet, you just have to be smart about when and how you use it. Don't let water sit in it for weeks and don't let it bake in the sun. For more tips on safely using your beloved plastic water bottle, check out our full list of tips.
