Think Before You Drink Bottled Water: Using A Reusable Water Bottle Matters

Think Before You Drink Bottled Water: Using A Reusable Water Bottle Matters

"You can not get via a single day with out having an impact on the world around you. What you do makes a distinction, and it's a must to determine what sort of difference you need to make."

- Jane Goodall

Searching for an environmentally pleasant idea to faucet into? Here's one: ditch the plastic water bottles and begin getting your aqua at home.

An estimated 88% of plastic water bottles are NOT recycled in Canada - a number that is as embarrassing as it is staggering.

With each Canadian consuming 60 litres of bottled water a 12 months - and gross sales surpassing coffee, tea, and milk - this is a number of plastic needlessly piling up in landfills.

In North America, it was that about 70 million plastic water bottles ended up in landfills every year.

At present, within the US alone, Individuals use an estimated 50 BILLION plastic water bottles in a year - and forty billion of those ended up in landfills.

Holy batman... that is a LOT of plastic water bottles!

Throughout the globe, close to 2.5 billion kilograms of plastic are used to bottle water each year. And this plastic can take as long as 1,000 years to biodegrade. Within the process, toxic additives are leaching into the groundwater.

As for the quantity of oil required to supply mentioned plastic? It takes 17 million barrels of oil every year to make water bottles for the US market. That is the equivalent of fueling 1 million cars for a year.

But wait, there's more...
Footprint goes past the plastic

Unlike the cool water bottles is one of you get through your faucet at dwelling, bottled water has a much bigger environmental footprint because it has to be transported over lengthy distances. Instead of simply being piped into your glass in the kitchen, it arrives by truck, train, aircraft, and boat. And all these modes of transport require fossil fuels to get around.

And plenty of bottled water manufacturers actually use filtered faucet water much like the water you get at home anyway. Plus, residential tap water is usually more strictly tested and controlled than bottled water, so it makes little sense to purchase something that's so plentiful and low cost at home.

Think of the money you'll save

"Buying water in plastic bottles just doesn't make sense financially," explains the Pays to Live Green website. "It may well cost you as much as 2400 occasions as a lot to get your water in a one-time use bottle as opposed to getting it from the tap. The average bottle of water will cost you on average of $.seventy nine compared to just 1/three of a cent out of your faucet."

Here is what you are able to do to reduce the impact of plastic water bottles:

1. Cease buying bottled water - or maybe start by buying less

2. Recycle any disposable plastic water bottles you do use - versus throwing them within the rubbish

3. Purchase a reusable water bottle and use it at work, on the road, within the gym, etc.

Taking these steps will help to keep more water the place it needs to be - outside of a bottle. It can minimize down on unnecessary waste in landfills by reducing among the tens of millions of plastic water bottles dumped daily.

So let's ease up on automatically hitting the bottle and look for what's on tap instead.

Personally, I am a HUGE water drinker. I drink at least 2 litres of water a day. So you may rarely see me out and about with one among my trusty Nalgene water bottles in tow. However occasionally, if I overlook my water bottle or I run out of water (and there is not any place to refill it) then I'll purchase a disposable bottle of water. However I sure do not like to.
