Did you know that 60 million water bottles are being thrown away every day in the US? Very few of those bottles are properly recycled and most of them are turned into other products and not water bottles again, meaning new resources are needed to make more water bottles.
Here are a few suggestions what you can do to reduce the use of water bottles:
• Refuse plastic water bottles, even if they are offered to you for free
• Get and use a reusable water bottle, made from glass or steel
• Drink from water fountains
