My Sustainability Action (in 5 seconds!!!!)

The use of a $20 reusable water bottle can save the average American $6,180 after five years of use, which is the bare minimum life expectancy of a reusable water bottle. If one person switches to a reusable water bottle, 217 plastic water bottles will be saved from going to a landfill that year, not only do they save you a lot of money and help the environment, but they are also a healthier option as opposed to plastic water bottles. Reusable water bottles are lead and BPA free, which is beneficial to you and your families’ well-being. By switching to a reusable water bottle, Americans can save themselves thousands of dollars, help the environment by lowering the amount of plastic waste in the United States, and keep their families safer.

  1. This is a really great short video to promote the use of reusable water bottles! I never thought about the financial aspect of using this type of bottle, rather than a plastic one. Saving $6,180 is a lot of money. Also, I did not think about how much healthier a BPA-free water bottle is. I will make sure I always use my reusable water bottle from now on!

  2. I did my post on the same thing! I think it is really easy to carry around my reusable water bottle instead of constantly buying plastic ones. I like how you bring up the savings involved with this because it really is a win-win for your bank account and the environment!

  3. I did my post on reusable water bottles too! The effect of not using so many plastic water bottles could do incredible things for our landfill as well as our oceans and groundwater. I was horrified to find out that when plastic is buried in landfills, toxins seep into our groundwater and effect our food. Using reusable water bottles is a great way to reduce the harmful impact that plastic has on our environment!
