In case you haven’t heard yet, those water bottles you (hopefully don’t) drink out of are EXTREMELY wasteful and bad for the environment!
That’s why the Canadian company Redleaf Water has introduced a fully biodegradable water bottle that will decompose naturally.
While it is possible to recycle normal water bottles research shows that recycling rates are at less than 25%, which means that 75% of water bottles end up in a landfill!
The best option by far is to buy a reusable water bottle and fill it with water before you leave the house, but there are instances where that won’t work — such as emergencies where water is cut off.
The bottom line is this: STOP using plastic water bottles! Take responsiblity for your actions and their impact on the environment!
