How Reusable Water Bottles Will Save the World

The fastest growing environmental hazard is not global warming or fresh water shortage, it is poor waste management - and chief culprits of waste are plastic drinking bottles. With all the efforts to increase recycling among the average person a recent poll found that only thirty-percent of plastic bottles are recycled. For whatever reason that number is drastically reduced for water bottles which only see a meager twelve percent of users recycle. So, how big of a problem is it then? Forty-million plastic bottles a day are thrown away and end up in landfills or as litter. This problem is compounded by the fact that this is a fast growing trend. In 1990 the United States bought and produced 1.1 billion pounds of plastic and in 2002 that number jumped to 4 billion and is currently estimated even higher.

People have become obsessed with bottled water and other soft drinks and are irresponsibly disposing of them. What's more, disposable plastic bottles are made of petroleum, a finite commodity that is far from a green material. In fact to create a year's worth of disposable plastic water bottles in the United States alone requires 1.5 million barrels of oil. And though this is a surging problem in the United States, it is also a world concern being that it is estimated that world consumption of plastic is growing and currently stands at around 2.7 million tons per year. There is really only one solution to this mega-waste disaster that prevents us from being a more green society, and that is reusable water bottles.

Reusable water bottles are more popular than ever because of their positive environmental implications and new ultra-modern features and designs. Reusable water bottles have the potential of saving the disposal of hundreds and even thousands of water bottles a year per household. These items generally store more water and are decidedly more stylish than basic plastic water bottles. The material for which they are made can be hard plastic, metal or stainless steel; all of these materials have their own unique qualities. Stainless steel travel mugs are extremely popular and can have features like Carabiners, flip-tops, screw lids and rubber traction for grip. Hard plastic bottles have more flexibility and are extremely light-weight and metal bottles are very durable and have longer shelf life.

Reusable water bottles are the best possible alternative to using disposable plastic bottles. Because disposable plastic bottles are so hazardous and are creating bulk in our landfills, the act of switching from disposable to reusable bottles is a potentially critical change. And, though it is true that water bottles are made of non-biodegradable material like hard plastic and others, they are reusable and recyclable.
