I have green spheres in my water pitcher. Can someone help me identify them?

I have these green spheres in my relatively new Brita water pitcher, as seen here: http://www.fantasyislands.org/IMG_4190.JPG
The filter is a little over a month old. It hasn't seen sunlight and hasn't been out of the refrigerator for more than a few minutes at a time.
Are they an algae or type of bacteria? If so, what type would they be?
Is the water still safe to consume? (Yes, I'm going to get a new filter)
