Bottled water changed the course of history in many ways. In the early 2000s, there was a big shift to bottled water from tap due rising concerns on water contamination.
Industry data shows that today it is the favorite drink of the market – not water, not carbonated drinks; PLAIN BOTTLED WATER.
So what does this mean for the rest of the world outside businesses who capitalized on the water bottle craze?
First thing is, bottled water is not as “clean” as they are preached to be. You don’t know where they come from and what they’ve been through before ending up in the convenience store refrigerator.
During transport, these plastic water bottles bottles are exposed to different environment factors including direct sunlight and freezing temperatures. Plastic water bottles, release chemical compounds that have been found to alter hormones and have other potential human health effects during temperature change. That’s why we’re told to NEVER drink bottled water that has been staying in your car.
On the other hand, we should not forget that plastic water bottle is in fact PLASTIC. This non-biodegradable material stays in the planet for hundreds of years before it degenerates back to what it was made of. Container Recycling Institute reports that there 60 million plastic bottles end up in landfills every single day.
And that doesn’t include those that are floating in our oceans. Thousands of water animals have been reported to choke on plastic waste materials, including plastic bottles, that have been dumped in our water systems or directly to the ocean.
The ugly thing about this is that it kills the animals, the environment, and it kills you.
