Stop Wasting Money on Bottled Water!
How often do you consume bottled water? If the answer is pretty often, quitting that habit might be beneficial to your health and also your wallet. As you may already know, drinking water is extremely important for your health because water plays an important role in various bodily functions such as digestion, absorption, circulation, creation of saliva, transportation of nutrients, and maintenance of body temperature. However, when you drink water out of a plastic bottle you do more harm than good to the environment and your wallet. Here are some facts you probably didn’t know about plastic bottles:
Bottled water isn’t necessarily more clean or healthy
Yes, that’s true! On the one hand, bottled water is often depicted as being higher quality, clean and healthy but that’s not always the case. Some bottles are filled with tap water and marketed as pure from springs. That’s why behind every brand of bottled water there is a multi-million-dollar marketing campaign. On the other hand, by drinking bottled water you may get exposed to harmful toxins that come from the plastic. These toxins are absorbed by the water and later ingested by whoever purchased it, jeopardizing everyone’s health.
Tons of plastic bottles are discarded every year
Have you ever wondered where all empty plastic bottles of water go? Some of them get recycled while others end up in landfills of trash or get incinerated. According to some studies, only 1 in every 5 bottles of water gets recycled, while the other 80% ends up contaminating the environment worldwide. The Guardian released an article this year warning that “annual consumption of plastic bottles is set to top half a trillion by 2021, far outstripping recycling efforts and jeopardizing oceans, coastlines and other environments.”
It costs double the amount of water to make plastic bottles
Every bottle made requires double that amount of water in production costs, not to mention that a lot of water gets wasted in the filtering and bottling process. In other words, it’s expensive to create the bottles, they contaminate the environment and put our health at risk.
Keep in mind, it’s not necessarily wrong to consume bottled water, but you should be aware of the impact that these bottles have on the environment. If you would like to avoid waste while having unlimited clean, great-tasting water you can purchase a water filter! Water filters are super easy to install, and they can last for a long time. These filters not only provide you with clean water, but they also help you save tons of money annually. It’s totally worth the investment because you can have the peace of mind that you’ll always have fresh water at home without having to go to the grocery store all the time.
