Drinking enough water every day is important, and bottled water provides a practical way to rehydrate yourself, especially outdoors. Unfortunately, many people tend to throw away plastic bottles once done, not caring what happens to them. This video shows the lifecycle of a plastic bottle.
Bottled water is one of the most popular commodities in the world.
Besides being reliable in areas without clean tap water, companies market it as sweeter and healthier than tap water. Unfortunately, this means that there are a lot of plastic bottles lying around.
Plastic bottle waste is one of the biggest environmental headaches in the world. Most plastic bottles end up in landfills or water sources such as rivers, lakes, and oceans. Bottles in landfills can leak toxic chemicals into the soil, poisoning crops and water supplies. Likewise, plastics in the ocean waters can interfere with the growth of aquatic life and poison marine life.
Fortunately, one solution can help mitigate the environmental impact of bottled water – recycling and reusing. By recycling and reusing the bottles, people can reduce plastic pollution, protecting the environment, marine life, plants, and humanity.
