Swear off plastic water bottles in favor of a reusable one for a week. It’s an easy way to reduce your carbon footprint, reduce water pollution and cut landfill trash.
We use more than 50 billion plastic water bottles each year, but most – about 38 billion bottles – end up in landfills, rivers and on the streets in our own neighborhoods. Most plastic bottles that are thrown out will take hundreds of years to biodegrade.
Did you also know that it can take up to six or seven bottles of water just to produce the plastic used in one bottle, or that we use 17 million barrels of oil per year to satisfy our demand for bottled water?
Once you've signed up, you can even find an eco-friendly Defend Our Future water bottle here.
