Go Green With Eco Water Bottles

A shocking fact is that over 80 percent of disposable plastic bottles end up in landfills. That amounts to about 2 million tons of discarded water bottles that are piled up in U.S. landfills alone. It also takes over 700 years for a single bottle to decompose. This is not even to mention the impact disposable bottles have on our oceans, marine life, and other parts of the environment.

Switching to an eco water bottle can reduce your carbon footprint significantly. Even the process of producing plastic bottles is taxing on the environment if you consider the amount of oil required to produce one single plastic bottle.

If you could make the shift to a more eco-friendly solution and rather opt for a re-usable water bottle than a disposable bottle, the person next to you might do the same, and the person next to them might also do the same. This kind of ripple effect could end up reversing the ill effect we currently have on the environment by encouraging more recycling and actually reducing the waste we build up.
