- Over the past 50 years, world plastic production has doubled.
- 73% of beach litter worldwide is plastic.
- The average person eats 70,000 microplastics each year.

So, what can we do?
Stop Buying Bottled Water! It’s that simple. Let’s eliminate the market for it.
Well, while recycling is great, it’s simply not enough anymore as such a small percentage of them actually gets recycled. Its even better to avoid buying single-use plastic altogether. For example, instead of buying plastic grocery bags and bottled water, why not use a canvas bag, a stainless-steel bottle, or a glass bottle? These reusable items can be washed, stored, and used over and over again, without creating any waste.
Did you know that there are already two million tons of water bottle waste in our landfills? That’s insane!
Due to our growing desire for convenience, we have piled mass amounts of unnecessary plastic waste on the planet, just to transport water – something we can drink for free from our taps! It’s time for change.
Tap Water Is Free!
Okay, okay, we know what you’re going to say. Water isn’t ‘free’. Yes, you do pay a water bill, but when you think about it, how much is one glass of water from your home when compared to a shower, the dishwasher, or the laundry?
You have access to an unlimited supply of water where you can fill up as many reusable water bottles as you need to get through the day! All it takes is a little extra planning and time.
To put things into perspective, that little extra planning and time can help to:
- Reduce plastic waste.
- Save marine mammals and coral.
- Decrease plastic-related health problems.
Sounds worth it, doesn’t it?
