I'm kind of shocked that with all of the info out there, people still continue to use plastic water bottles. I've asked around and the two main reasons I hear are that it's cheap and it's readily available.
- Most bottled water is not regulated (meaning you don't know what you are drinking) while tap water is.
- Manufacturing and shipping a bottle of water wastes 5 times as much as is in the bottle.
- Single use plastic bottles can leach BPA (Biphesenol a) which is a hormone disruptor in humans.
- While many bottles are recycled (actually downcycled), over 3 million bottles end up in landfills each day in California alone, and many more end up out at sea and in our rivers.
