A Simple Habit to Replace Single-Use Plastic Bottles
A large percentage of plastic waste comes from single-use plastic water bottles. The ever-increasing use of plastic over the years has filled up our oceans and landfills with unwanted plastic pollution. Plastic takes thousands of years to decompose with a large amount of oil used in the production process.
The full extent of the damage it is causing to our planet is impossible to fully account for, from killing marine life to unnecessary carbon emissions. Although we are a long way to fully stop using any kind of plastic in our daily lives but we can start minimising the damage to our planet.
An easy way to start reducing plastic use is to stop buying single-use plastic bottled water and replace them with a reusable water bottle. Not only will it save you money in the long run, but this is also such a simple habit to start in your journey to sustainable living.
What are the effects of plastic on the environment?
Plastic is not biodegradable. After you have finished with your single-use plastic water bottle, it creates a problem in our natural environment as plastic requires thousands of years to dissolve making them pretty much impossible to get rid of. Often enough, single-use plastics are not properly disposed of, so they eventually end up in our ocean killing millions of marine lives each year.
Single-use plastic bottle requires oil to produce. The negative impact on the environment from the extraction of oil, the processing of bottle water, storage and delivering them to our stores is definitely a growing concern for the future of our planet.
Plastic Bottles causing Health Concerns
Not only does plastic negatively impact our planet, but many of us are also unaware of the health dangers of drinking water from a plastic bottle.
Marketing tactics by bottled water companies make us believe that their water is from a quality source. More often than not, it is just tap water and some may not even be filtered properly. While some companies do provide premium quality through proper filtration, the water is exposed to toxic chemicals from the plastic bottle. This is a risk we put ourselves into with drinking from plastic bottled water. You are exposing yourself to ingesting harmful chemicals used to make the plastic as toxins are leached into the water over time.
