Many people think of bottled water as a safe, healthier alternative to tap water. But research indicates that the opposite is true; disposable bottled water is tested for microbes and other pollution four times less than tap water, and the bottles themselves may contain harmful chemicals that cause serious health problems.
What’s worse, disposable bottles create a major impact on the environment. Not only do they increase the size of landfills, they require a ton of oil to produce. Just one year’s supply of bottled water uses up 17 million barrels of oil!
If you want to help preserve the environment (and your health), reusable water bottles are a great alternative—and there are plenty of different options available.
