No More Landfill Plastic: Reusable Water Bottles

Posted on 05/08/14 in Eco-Friendly Promotional Products
Reusable Water BottlesHow many water bottles would you guess are thrown away in the United States every hour? Ten thousand? Fifty thousand? One hundred thousand? What if you were told that the real number is actually closer to 2.5 million. And only 27% of these are recycled, which means that billions of plastic water bottles are winding up in landfills every year.

Not only is this wasteful, but it's also tough on the environment. If you're interested in doing your part, one of the best ways to help is by investing in reusable water bottles. Many companies have even put their name or logo on reusable water bottles to promote their brand and image. These products are generally made from steel, aluminum, glass, and durable plastic. Here are some additional benefits of a reusable bottle.


Many experts, such as the Natural Resources Defense Council, now say that bottled water is not any healthier, cleaner, or purer than tap water. Many people also overlook the fact that plastic water bottles can be hazardous to your health. Polyethylene terephthalate, also known as PET, is found in a wide range of plastic water bottles and is hazardous to human health. Prepackaged water bottles tend to be handled by more people, so bacteria accumulates. This increases the risk of getting sick and catching an infection. Reusable water bottles are easy to wash and keep free of germs.

Save Money

A bottle of water might seem cheap, but that's only because you're thinking of how much it costs to buy one. When you add up how many are purchased in the course of a month, year, or decade, the real cost becomes much higher. Many reusable water bottles are priced affordably, so they end up paying for themselves over time because you no longer need to purchase prepackaged water bottles. Bottled water is often more expensive than tap water by a multiple of several hundred.

Protect the Environment

The major benefit of investing in a reusable water bottle is that they're much more eco-friendly. Each prepackaged water bottle that's produced wastes resources and omits harmful pollutants into the air. Additionally, it can take centuries for a single plastic bottle to decompose, which leads to huge amounts of unnecessary waste. Reusable water bottles cut down on landfill waste. If everyone invested in a reusable water bottle, we could greatly reduce the footprint of our entire country, which would benefit the entire world.
