As convenient as bottled water may be, did you know?
🚰 480 billion plastic bottles were purchased in 2016
🚰 Globally, a million bottles are purchased per minute
🚰 91% of them are not recycled, ending up in landfills and the ocean
🚰 It takes 450 years for plastic to break down
🚰 40% of bottled water is tap water
🚰 It takes 3xs more water to make one bottle of water .
Ways to avoid this waste and #banthebottle are:
🌟 Carrying a stainless steel, or glass water bottle/jar with you at all times ( such as a DROPbottle)
🌟 Using a water filter.
🌟 If there are "disposable" water bottles in your office, speak to someone about creating ways to reduce #plasticwaste or sign up for a water cooler service where they refill the dispenser bottles.
🌟 Share your comments and solutions and inspire others
