Let’s go back to school and make our contribution to saving the environment. Everyone loves to talk about environmental conditions, but there is hardly anyone who comes up with a solution.
We have a solution for you: a quick and easy solution. You don’t have to do something very big to leave your mark and take a step towards change. Often, it is the small steps that leave their footprints.
So, the good news is that you can help to fight and save the environment too.
So, what’s the secret?
Replace your plastic water bottles with reusable water bottles - it's that simple! School aged children are able to refill their bottles from the school bubblers.
In our schools, school bubblers have over the past few years due to the preference to purchase a store bought water bottle when required. Often these are only a single use water bottle which is discarded once emptied.
Sometimes going back in the past can be the solution to many problems. This is one of them.
By simply replacing our store brought plastic bottles to reusable bottles and children taking advantage of school bubbles, this alone can have a huge impact on environmental issues.
The best thing is that reusable water bottles have many far-reaching benefits.
First, they save you a lot of money that you spend on purchasing a new bottle whenever you are thirsty. Imagine how much you can save in just a week!
Furthermore, the benefits extend beyond you. Did you know that producing one year’s worth of water bottle can save a lot of oil – about 17 million barrels! To put this into context, this oil can be used to fill 1.3 million cars for an entire year. Imagine the amount of oil that we are wasting on water bottles that we will just throw away.
However, the story doesn’t end here. Bottling water release 2.5 million tons of carbon dioxide gas. You might already know that carbon dioxide gas is the one that contributes to the greenhouse effects and leads to global warming and a host of such issues. So, by just drinking from a reusable water bottle, you are doing a huge disservice to the environment.
When we throw away the plastic bottle, it continues its trajectory of pollution to the ocean. Statistics believe that plastic waste kills 1.1 million marine organisms every year.
There are studies out reporting that water bottles are bad for your own health. They are constituted of chemicals that can lead to breast cancer, asthma and even reproductive problems.
So, changing our lifestyle to include reusable bottles can help to protect animals and save their lives. They can save millions of dollars all over the world that can be spent in other places.
Moreover, reusable water bottles are recyclable. So, they don’t fill the environment with waste that cannot be recycled.
