Did you know that of the 50 billion disposable water bottles that are purchased each year in the United States, only 23% are recycled?
It’s a staggering statistic: 38 billion bottles thrown out with the trash and dumped in landfills, plastic bottles that take hundreds of years to decompose, enough bottles that, were they placed in a straight line would wrap around the earth 190 times. Something to think about next time you buy a case of water bottles at the supermarket.
The good news is that times are changing, attitudes are changing and habits are changing. With greater awareness comes a greater emphasis on sustainable living and Americans are leading the way in what will become a global revolution. A small but significant step in that direction is the trend toward switching to reusable water bottles. Make the switch today and start enjoying the benefits:
Be Part of the Solution:
One bottle at a time. Set an example and at the same time know that you are making a difference.
A Healthy Choice:
Disposable water bottles can contain BPA (bisphenol A), a chemical known to cause health hazards such as cancer and hormonal issues. By making the switch to a reusable, BPA-free water bottle, you can be sure the water you drink is safe and healthy.
Reduce Toxic Emmissions:
By reducing the number of plastic water bottles produced, we reduce the amount of emissions and toxins released into the environment from factory production processes. For more information on factory emissions created from disposable water bottles, see http://tinyurl.com/htc7gsx.
In this case it’s good to be self serving. One reusable water bottle can save the average consumer hundreds of dollars a year over the cost of one-time-use disposables. It makes sense to keep the earth green and your wallet, too!
Fortunately, there are dozens of reusable water bottle choices available to the consumer. From single-walled BPA-free plastic to double-walled stainless steel or copper insulated, reusable water bottles are the ideal choice for your hydration needs.
