Updated: 4 days ago

Plastic bottles are very common in our supermarkets. Not only for water but also for other drinks and often for food as well. One of the first tips I give someone who wants to live more sustainably is to start using a reusable water bottle. To avoid the use of single-use plastic but also because it is better for our health. In this blog post, you can read all about why you should be switching to a plastic free water bottle and my 6 favorite plastic free water bottles that you can bring with you everywhere you go.

Environment

Did you know that about 1000 people open a plastic water bottle in the US every second? When you know this, it shouldn’t be a surprise that over 60 million plastic bottles are thrown away every day. These include water bottles but also other types of plastic bottles that contain drinks and even bottles that contain other food items. Most of these 60 million bottles end up in landfills where they will be incinerated.
