Do you purchase bottled water? Buy a water bottle instead

What is a good alternative to bottled water? Buying reusable water bottles made of either glass, metal or even plastic. The plastic for reusable water bottles is different than the one time use bottled water because it is durable (lasts longer), dishwasher safe, and in many cases it is BPA free. Reusable water bottles are also a one-time payment, whereas bottled water has a price for every bottle purchased.

Do you drink bottled water on a daily/weekly basis? If so, is it because you have to, or is it your personal choice? If it is a personal choice, perhaps it is time for you to choose a different alternative. Bottled water is convenient and for the most part it is easy to find. However bottled water has many negative effects on the environment. Did you know that although most bottled water claims to be from fresh spring waters, about 25-40% of it comes from municipal sources (tap water)? Bottled water also produces around 1.5 million tons plastic each year which is close to 50 million gallons of oil needed to produce the plastic. Although plastic bottles can be recycled, over 80% are thrown away. This is bad for the environment because plastic takes a long time to decompose in the landfill.
