Since Brita (aka Clorox) doesn't seem to be worried about recycling their filters - how about 7G make a similar but recyclable product?

The home purification market is large and constantly growing, no doubt due to the desire of many informed consumers to enhance their everyday water top quality. Research that it's easy to get sick from contaminated tap water, and that water in bottles is not necessarily of any better top quality than what you get through your tap. So that leaves the average homeowner with a choice of installing a home purification system to enhance their water.

I think this is a great idea. It is just a surprise to me that any company wouldn't want to change a product that is better for the environment.
Not sure if a Brita filter does this, but how about a filter that removes the medications found in tap water. I've read in some areas of the country, sewer water is made "potable" and sent back out in the city water system. But the processes used to clean the water do not remove medications. So, we are inadvertently consuming medications that we may or may not need. Here’s a link to one article but there are many more on the web.
You can recycle the Brita filters, it just isn't easy. www.preserveproducts.com/recycling/gimme5locations.html. There aren't many locations, and if you want to pay shipping you can mail them, but they are recyclable.
I love the thought of it. I use the filter for much longer than the recommendations and it still seems to work but recycling them sounds like a good idea.
this would be so awesome i am all for it!!!!!!!!!! i feel guilty for useing my brita filter
