Plastic water bottles are no joking matter when it comes to our planet and Eva Longoria’s household.

Disposable water bottles are not part of the “Desperate Housewives” actress’ home decor. People caught up with Longoria at a recent Brita Burbank YMCA special event, which celebrated the company’s donation of water filtration pitchers and dispensers to YMCA facilities located across the U.S., where she revealed that water is our future and plastic is not.

In between Longoria promoting her cause and kids creating their own fruit-flavored water, the actress opened up about the importance of not using plastic water bottles. As she revealed, “So many end up in the ocean so I’ve banned them from the house.”

Longoria continued to open up about the importance of water at the event by stating, “It’s just not in my future. With kids, I love their energy and spirit and innocence. It’s really important for us to be here today to talk to them about water because that stays with them.”

As an avid exerciser and activist, the “Devious Maids” producer finds several benefits from H20. It’s not a boring clear liquid. For Longoria, she describes it as follows: “Water’s the original energy drink. Water is really good for you. Water can be fun.”
