30 great finds to improve your health in 2013

Green Living editors’ top picks for products and services

Up your water intake

Usually, Green Living dishes out water conservation tips; this time we’re advising you to increase your personal water consumption for optimal health. Stay hydrated with a reusable water bottle. We love this recyclable one from PureHydration, free of BPA, lead and phthalates. (Torontonians, get the free QUENCH app, which shows you the nearest water refill station in the GTA.) You can check your tap water’s purity with a DIY test kit. If you need a water filtration system, this under-the-counter model produces healthier, better-tasting drinking water with reduced levels of volatile organic compounds (VOCs), chlorine, heavy metals and other toxins. On the go? Drop one of botl Inc.’s plant-based activated carbon filters into your bottle for portable health!
