Water Bottles

We all use them. Single-use plastic bottles are readily available and inexpensive to buy, so it’s easy to see why so many people drink water from them all the time. In fact, the entire world goes through about a million (yes, that’s one million) plastic bottles a minute, with only less than 9% of them finding their way into recycling bins after use. It’s estimated that about half a trillion plastic bottles will be sold around the world by the year 2020.

Because you are not supposed to use aluminium in food grade products, it must come with a plastic liner, which can contain BPA and/or other harmful chemicals. Unlike aluminium, stainless steel will need no liner to keep you safe and healthy, so look for smooth metal inside your bottle.

First, we should point out that aluminum has a very low level of toxicity to humans, meaning in general it can be considered safe. … For example, just because you purchased an aluminum water bottle instead of a plastic one doesn’t mean it is BPA free.

Reusable water bottles are better for the environment and cheaper in the long run than continuously buying bottled water again and again. After all, water out of the tap is free.

Most bottling companies simply tap into the mains water supply, triple filter it, bottle it, and then sell it to you. It’s like paying for clean and fresh drinking water twice. In addition, municipal water is sometimes safer to drink than bottled water because government agencies regulate the water closer and more often than some private bottling companies do.

So please do yourself a favour, and get a reusable water bottle. The Earth will thank you and so will your wallet.
