There a quite a few people who buy plastic water bottles and then reuse them over and over again. However, reusing plastic water bottles this way is terrible for your health. Plastic is essentiality a porous material, which means that some of the chemicals seep out into the liquid,
and then into your body. Also, when these plastic water bottles sit in a hot or cold environment for a long time, these chemicals are filter into the water even more. Therefore, it can get pretty dangerous!
Also, these plastic bottles are then thrown away into landfills, where they live on and on and on and on, taking up valuable landfill space, leaking toxic additives into the groundwater. Plastic can take up to 1,000 years to biodegrade, if ever. This means, as of now, if you lined up plastic bottles end to end, it could travel from Earth to the Moon, and back, 10 times!!!!
The best thing to do is to buy yourself a stainless steel water bottle. Stainless steel bottles last a lifetime and are easy to clean – and water will always taste the same – good and clean. Also, there are SO many different designs out there- you can choose one for each day of the week to match your mood or clothing!
It’s better to pay a small price today than it is to pay a bigger price tomorrow.
