Holy hell! Are water bottles really that bad?!



We have all heard that single use plastic water bottles are bad for the environment and are filling up our landfills and our oceans but this graphic from Online Education really puts some punch behind the argument to ditch single use water bottles and invest in a reusable one.

The Facts About Bottled Water

For years I have made a conscious effort to decrease the amount of throw away plastic that we bring into our house but this is a great reminder that it really does matter.

Did you read that last part? The part about only 1 in 5 water bottles being recycled? For goodness sake - if your not ready to give up your water bottles - could you at least recycle them? Please?

They meet monthy and talk about things like: recycleing, pollution, green and natural building, rain water collection, organic, native and other water saving landscape techniques, high efficiency heating and cooling, solar and renewable energy.

I'm sure you've got an opinion on this. Lemme have it in the comments.
