This is what drives me crazy! This stupid tend of buying bottled water. I see women in stores buying several cases at a time. Do they not know that most of that water is city water? The same water you get from your home. I will not buy bottled water, but when I do buy water I buy by the gallon. It’s less than a dollar a gallon and less plastic. I use an aluminum water bottle. I do understand the need for clean and better tasting water. Where I live the water is disgusting to me. There is a large amount of chlorine in the water here. If you turn the water on hot and fill up a glass it is white. It looks like watered down milk.
For those of you use bottled water a safe alternative are to buy a filtered water pitcher or container for the fridge. You will always have clean water to drink and to fill up your water bottle. It will save you a lot of money and space. Those packs of bottled water take up a lot of space in your house and are more expensive. Here is some information about recycling water bottles and other plastics.
Americans use 2,500,000 plastic bottles every hour! Most of them are thrown away!
Plastic bags and other plastic garbage thrown into the ocean kill as many as 1,000,000 sea creatures every year!
Recycling plastic saves twice as much energy as burning it in an incinerator.
Americans throw away 25,000,000,000 Styrofoam coffee cups every year.
