Published Aug 9th, 2019 1:30PM EDT

You’re supposed to drink eight glasses of water a day and that can potentially mean drinking eight bottles of water or eight glasses of tap water daily. That isn’t a great option for the planet or potentially for your health. Give yourself the hydration you need without any hassle by getting a water pitcher with a filter. Filtering your water offers you the purest water and keeps unwanted chemicals or sediments out of your body. Plus, it gives you better tasting water, quenching your thirst in the process. We’ve highlighted three of the best options out there for you to check out, so you can finally tell your doctor you are drinking enough water.
