Here a few fun facts about plastic water bottles:
- Only 1 out of 5 plastic bottles is recycled. EVERY HOUR an estimated 5.4 million plastic bottles end up in landfills or in the environment.
- It takes 1 PET plastic bottle 700 years to start decomposing.
- 90% of the cost of bottled water is due to the packaging and shipping, not the water quality. And don’t forget how their shipping relies on mass amounts of petroleum which contributes greatly to CO2 emissions. It takes the U.S. alone 1.5 million barrels of oil to meet the demands of the plastic water bottle industry.
- There’s an area of plastic in the Pacific Ocean the size of Texas - it’s known as The Great Pacific Garbage Patch. Plastic is the number one threat to our marine ecosystem.
