Brita Filter Recycling

Terry over at the Fake Plastic Fish blog may be launching a campaign with Clorox, the company that owns the North American division of Brita, to create a way for consumers to recycle the plastic filter cartridges. Note: the Brita company does recycle in Germany, so it can be done. Beth includes the reply she received from Clorox when she inquired about why we didn't recycle in the US and Canada. [Clorox also owns the Burt's Bees brand.]

In Tallahassee, you may not need a Brita filter, according to the most recent Water Quality Report issued by the City, however, our drinking water source does have added fluoride and chlorine.


Hi. Thanks for the link. I have started a Yahoo Group for anyone who is interested in discussing this issue. The URL is:

We are currently in the beginning planning phase. We need ideas for how to proceed and also need to see if there is enough public interest for a campaign like this to have an impact. We welcome anyone who'd like to weigh in on the issue.
