Hello.Hey, Bloggy Friends!
Who wants to save the earth? I do, I do!
I am constantly trying to look for new ways in which I can contribute to the betterment of our beautiful planet. I realize I have a long way to go, but every little stride makes a huge difference.
Our newest save-the-world venture involves ditching all of those plastic water bottles we buy at the grocery every week, for a single aluminum one. By the end of each week we find our recycle bin full of empty plastic bottles. That just seemed excessive, even though they were getting recycled.
"In 2003, about 40 million bottles a day went into the trash, or even more unfortunately became litter. These billions of bottles take up valuable landfill space, leak toxic additives into the groundwater and take a whopping 1,000 years to biodegrade, if ever" (SOURCE).
There are also studies out showing plastic bottles can actually be bad for our health. By drinking out of plastic bottles, and especially reusing them, we are taking in many of the chemicals that were used to manufacture them. There is an educational video for more information on this subject!
By buying an aluminum bottle we are doing our part in decreasing the mass production of expensive, plastic bottles. Aluminum bottles are sleek, stylish and can fit in your bag just as easily as those plastic ones. They are definitely more expensive than buying a Dasani at 7-11, but once you fill it up two or three times it totally pays for itself!
Think about getting a sexy, aluminum bottle for yourselves, Bloggy Friends, all the cool kids are doing it! If we each do our part to eliminate all this excess, we will make huge strides in maintaining a healthy and vibrant planet. Go earth!
Have a great day.
