Taking a family break from modern life? Make sure your camping equipment is up to the job

Modern life can be all consuming and getting back to nature offers the perfect antidote, but before you head off grid make sure you have a portable water filter you can trust.

Concerns about screen time, a poor diet, too much time indoors, school pressures and the environment in general can prove overwhelming for parents.

This immense pressure no doubt helps to account for the popularity of family camping holidays, woodland breaks and the rise in‘off grid’ getaways.

Getting back to nature is a chance to get away from it all, reconnect with your children and tear them away from their screens.

When planning your escape though, having the right equipment will make a difference. Do you really want to go camping and end up driving out to the nearest convenience stall to stock up on drinks or plastic bottles of water? Or can you be sure about the quality of the water you will have access to onsite?

Consider your footprint when getting away from it all – take a water filter camping

Considering the environmental footprint of your family camping holiday should be a factor when enjoying the spoils of nature, which by default means minimising waste, in particular single-use plastic waste.

But enjoying the best quality food and drink is also important to the quality of your holiday. Just as using a camping stove doesn’t necessarily mean sacrificing the quality of the food you eat with a bit of careful planning, a trip away also doesn’t need to mean compromising on the quality of your drinking water.

A gravity-fed stainless steel water filter is the ideal solution for families concerned about plastic pollution and access to a reliable water source when camping.

Rather than boiling water for drinks then relying on the campsite shop for juice or bottled water, you can enjoy access to good quality water that is perfect for making the kids drinks as well as washing and preparing all your food.

Just because you are getting away from it all doesn’t mean you have to compromise on quality.

Doulton’s gravity-fed filter works by filtering water from a top chamber, through high performance ceramic filters into lower chamber where the filtered water can be accessed.
