My mom uses a large water dispenser that sits on the counter. She takes it to the grocery store and refills it with osmosis water every week. But the plastic is #7 recyclable and I want to find one for her that's safer. I looked on reusablebags.com but didn't find anything that's large, like five gallons that she can take with her and refill. Thanks!!!!!

We use one of these as well. The best that I've been able to come up with is a PETE 3 gallon container that I found at Lowe's (a home repair store like Home Depot). I just refill those at the water store. They still fit on our dispenser and as a bonus, I can actually lift them up. (I can't lift up the 5 gallon ones.) Mountain Valley Spring Water sells 2.5 gallon glass ones at Whole Foods which I believe fit but I imagine are heavy.<br><br>

I have been looking for a while at some glass water dispensers that look like huge jars with a glass lid. Like <a href="http://www.infused-vodka.com/index.asp?PageAction=VIEWPROD&ProdID=29&HS=1" target="_blank">this.</a> They were for around $20 in Marshall's, Home Goods. They look kind of big though and scary, being glass, as thick as it may be. I am still struggling to decide to buy one or not. I am trying to find a copper one, like they use in India to store water. Something like <a href="http://www.kellenpr.com/clientnews/discoverCopper/dc_edition_7/pitcher_pink_sari_brass_pot.jpg" target="_blank">this</a>.
