Did you buy a plastic bottle of water today? Perhaps you filled a bottle from a tap and carried it with you?
If you buy three plastic bottles of water through the week, that will be over 1000 in 7 years. Imagine them all piled up in your home or floating down your local river. Who says individuals can't make a difference by making good choices.
If you think the plastic bottles all get recycled go join your local beach cleaning group or clean up your local woods or park and then see if you still believe that.
Bottled water companies don't produce water. They just produce plastic bottles. Stop the demand!
