It's about time! The Reduce Vision Stainless Steel Water Filtration pitcher from Base Brands is the first water filter pitcher to be made out of stainless steel. (Most water filtration pitchers are made out of plastic.) The Vision pitcher comes with one 90 day filter, but it's designed to also fit most major brand filters including Brita and Pur. It'll be available for sale this April.
As of right now, the filters that come with the pitcher are not returnable or recyclable, but they say they're working on that. In the meantime, it might be worth it to stick with a Brita filter, which you at least can recycle through the Preserve Gimme 5 program.
