What is Happening With Your Water?

Many people don’t trust the water that comes out of their taps, so they decide it will be safer if they only drink bottled water, instead.  Unfortunately, many people don’t realize that bottled water is not that great for the environment, and may not be healthy for you, either.  Sure, plastic can be recycled, but within that plastic is a little chemical called bisphenol A (BPA), that leaches out if the bottle becomes hot (as, for example, if you’re going out biking in 90 degree weather for a significant length of time).

Reasons to Skip Bottled Water

The bottled water consumed by people worldwide has increased so much in the last several years; it generates billions of dollars a year in the U.S. alone. The craze of drinking bottled water for the dietary benefits as well as the taste have had an effect on the amount of water that people purchase.

The years between 1997 and 2005 have seen the amount of water being consumed more than double nationwide. When facing the facts about the amount of plastic this puts into the landfills and waste centers we are slowly taking over our planet with trash.
