that will conserve approximately 1000 plastic containers a year per average consumer). I was excited at the prospect of having clean water but even more excited at not contributing to what I am now hearing is a problem with plastic bottled water bottles (I will get into that in a minute).
I tried my water bottle and I must admit felt very cool the first day at the gym (it is very cute too) drinking out of it and refilling it at the water fountain. Now I take it everywhere and I mean everywhere! Do you have any idea how much money I have saved? I don't either but it must be a lot because prior to getting my Back To The Tap water bottle I was drinking 6 plastic bottled waters a day (yes I pee a lot)!!! So that is 42 a week at least and the cost is not even the issue for me now but knowing what plastic really does to us and the environment is really upsetting.
I just want to say that if you are interested in helping the earth and doing a good thing for your body by drinking lots of delicious water then I recommend this bottle. I am going to buy one for my kids,husband and friends. This is probably one of the best things I have seen yet (no, I am not getting paid or anything to say this-just love the idea).
THE BOTTLED WATER FACTS:
|Bottled water costs hundreds or thousands of times more than tap water.|
|Most tap water is just as clean and safe as bottled water.|
The idea that all bottled water is "pure" is a marketing myth.
Plastic bottles can leach chemicals into the water.
|The Food and Drug Administration regulates only the 30 to 40 percent of bottled water sold across state lines - meaning most of the product you are drinking has not been inspected|
|U.S. plastic bottle production requires more than 1.5 million barrels of oil, enough to fuel 100,000 cars.|
|About 86 percent of the empty plastic water bottles in the United States land in the garbage instead of being recycled.|
|Disposable plastic bottles can leach a chemical known as Bisphenol 3 into the water, the environment, and our own bloodstreams. In fact, evidence of BPA, which is known to disrupt the hormone system of humans, can now be found in approximately 95% of Americans!|
