Here are only SOME of the problems plastic water bottles have on the earth all of these facts are from ban the bottle  and these all have to do with the U.S

1.)  Americas usage of plastic bottles is at high demand, thus using  over 17 billion barrels of oil yearly, that is enough oil to supply about 1.4 million cars a year.

2.) With all the energy plastic water bottles cause the energy could be used instead to power 190,000 homes

3.) Antimony, which is found in PET plastic bottles, in small doses can cause dizziness and depression; in larger doses it can cause nausea, vomiting and deathIsland-2

Plastic  Bottled water is not good for you either, yes it is water and water is natural. But plastic isn’t and when plastic gets hot it releases chemicals making the water no longer good to drink which is a huge waste.

Plastic water bottles also take over 1,000 years to biodegrade and if they are set on fire or burnt they release even more toxins.


Ways to ditch the plastic bottle

Getting a reusable NON-plastic water bottle without any BPA is actually hard to find yet once i find and try out one that will be the best choice for you and the environment.  BPA free reusable plastic water bottle or stainless steel bottles, yet aluminum reusable bottles do have a possible BPA liner which is not good.
