Have you ever wondered , what are the best water bottles ? There are plenty of reusable water bottles on the market, but not all bottles are made equal. Two of the preferred of these are either glass, and stainless steel water bottles. They last longer than plastic bottles and don’t leach Bisphenol A, or BPA, into the water.
If you buy two of these BPA plastic bottles of water every day, that’s 730 bottles you throw away in a year. In five years, that amounts to almost 3,350 water bottles – and that’s just you. Now multiply that number times the billions of people who are buying plastic water bottles.
Now think about this. One reusable glass water bottle can eliminate the need to buy and trash literally hundreds of single-use containers – containers that actually never really biodegrade. No wonder that, in the United States alone, more than 60 million plastic water bottles are thrown away daily.
Reusable water bottles should never be under estimated when it comes to reducing throwaway plastic improving health, saving money and the environment. It’s been estimated that as much as two gallons of water might be wasted for every gallon that’s bottled in water facilities’, so filling up at home, at work, or on the go is one of the best ways to save water, earth’s most precious resource.
Studies indicate that conventional plastic water bottle contains BPA, which has been linked to a variety of health issues such as increased risk of cancer, obesity, early onset puberty, and diabetes. Recently “BPA-free” were introduced, but at some point, these wear out, and then you’re still left with a plastic bottle to dispose of. So for health and the environment use stainless steel or glass, these reusable water bottles can be recycled over and over again.
