Consider using a reusable water bottle rather than buying water in plastic bottles. One million plastic bottles are purchased in the US every minute according to Earth Day organizers. 1,500 plastic bottles are thrown away every second of every day. The consumption of plastic bottles is predicted to hit half a trillion every year. This far outstrips recycling efforts and will severely jeopardize our environment and our oceans. The World Economic Forum predicts that by the year 2050, the ocean will contain more plastic than fish.
