WHY SINGLE-USE PLASTICS ARE BAD
Single-use plastics may represent the epitome of today’s throwaway culture. Just nine per cent of the world’s nine billion tonnes of plastic has been recycled.
Most of our plastic ends up in landfills, our oceans and waterways, and the environment. Plastics do not biodegrade. Instead they slowly break down into smaller pieces of plastic called microplastics.
WHAT YOU CAN DO ABOUT PLASTIC WATER BOTTLE POLLUTION?
Toss your plastic bottled water habit for good! A cultural shift can change the way plastic water bottles affect our environment.
Break your bottled water habit by filling your cabinet with 100% BPA-free, stainless steel water bottles that will not only help you improve the health of the environment, but will also be safer and better for your own health as well.
EFFECTS OF PLASTIC WATER BOTTLES ON HEALTH
People who want to reach their eight-glasses-of-water-a-day goal may be surprised by their healthy habit may actually make them ill depending on their water source.
After evaluating 18 bottled water products, one study found nearly 25,000 chemicals in bottled water. Among these were endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs), like BPA, which adversely affect human health.
