Human reliance on commercially bottled water is one of the single largest contributors to plastic pollution. At Willistown Conservation Trust, we collect carelessly discarded plastic bottles from Ashbridge Preserve every week!
Americans buy more than 29 billion bottles of water each year. And out of every 6 purchased, only 1 is recycled. A single bottle will need 1,000 years to disintegrate, all the while leeching toxins.
So, pick up a few nice reusable bottles, filter your tap water at home using one of several commercially available water filtration systems and skip the disposable bottle. Take the #PlasticFreeJuly challenge at https://www.plasticfreejuly.org/ and say no to plastic water bottles (and more)!
