1,500 water bottles a second end up in landfills

Here are some pretty alarming facts…..

1,500 water bottles end up in landfills every SECOND

17,000,000 barrels of oil are used to produce 26,000,000,000 bottles of water which could run 100,000 cars for a year

86% of bottles end up in the garbage, where are the others?

Plastic bottles contain Bisphenol-A a toxic chemical thought to cause breast cancer

People use an average of 400 bottles a year

100 BILLION DOLLARS every year is spent on plastic bottles

Now I don’t know about you, but I think that this is insane! It’s so easy to get a filtered system on your sink and carry a thermos, I do NOT buy bottles any more and it has simplified a part of my life !!!!!
