“The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page.”
― Augustine of Hippo
We all love travelling. It’s one of those things you can’t get enough of and wish you can do as often as possible. In this blog we are not going to give you all the advantages of travelling, nor tell you why it’s great – you already know this. Instead, we would like to talk about the other side of travelling:
- It costs money
- It increases your carbon footprint on the Earth
Now, what if we would tell you that a water filter could reduce both of these effects? Let us give you a few examples:
Scenario 1: 30 days in Thailand
You and your travel buddy have watched “The Beach” with Leonardo Di Caprio, and decided that you want to see the beautiful Thai beaches with your own eyes.
Your boss approves your well-deserved holiday, and you start planning a one-month trip through Thailand. You found the right backpack, cheap flight-tickets, and the itinerary for the first week is almost ready.
If you take a water filter to Thailand for a one-month trip with 2 persons, this is what you could save:
Scenario 2: 14 days in Mexico
With your partner and two kids you have two weeks to relax In Cancun, Mexico. The tap water is not safe to drink, and the last thing you want on a holiday is being stuck in your hotel room because the questionable water gave you stomach problems. You can opt for expensive, polluting bottled water, or you choose a water filter, which will save you and the Earth:
Scenario 3: 90 days in South-East Asia
Time to leave it all behind and discover the beauties of South-East Asia by yourself. Diving in the Philippines, Angkor Wat in Cambodia, and Bali in Indonesia. With a water filter you could save:
The savings of these scenarios are based on single trips. However, thanks to the re-usability of water filters, you can use it for a longer period of time and save even more on your future trips.
