50 billion water bottles are bought each year, and 80% of those go directly to landfills.
If you have access to a clean water source, there’s a simple way to reduce your contribution to the water bottle wastage: simply bring a reusable bottle with you.
More and more facilities are providing drinking fountains and water refill stations, so it’s easy to refill your bottle throughout the day.
And those reusable water bottles aren’t just for water! Fill them up with your favorite beverage: iced tea or coffee, lemonade, smoothies, and more.
Find a bottle that works for you, and remember: the best zero waste solution is something you already have. You probably have something around the house that you can use- a reusable water bottle you use for exercise, a Mason jar, a re-purposed food storage jar, a bottle that juice came in, etc. It doesn’t need to be fancy!
