BECOME PART OF PLASTIC FREE JULY – TIP #8
Did you know that nearly 90% of plastic water bottles are not recycled. This really surprised us, as we thought most people would think to at least throw plastic bottles into the recycling bin. Instead they end up in landfill, taking thousands of years to decompose. Rather than buying bottled water, why not use a reusable drink bottle and fill it with tap water, a great choice for the environment, your wallet, and possibly your health. With so many choices of reusable drinking bottles and flasks many stylishly designed, that you can take anywhere (to the gym, the office, in the car, at school or wherever you need to have drinks available), there is no excuses.
Something that we have learned is that the EPA's standards for tap water are more stringent than the FDA's standards for bottled water. Worth thinking about.
Say No to bottled water.
