Are You Drinking Plastic With Your Bottled Water?
The answer is yes, and this is something that many of you may not be aware of, or consider while drinking cold bottled water from the grocery store.
Yes, bottled water can be a great convenience and a readily available option for drinking water. When you’re thirsty, it can come in handy. But… do you really want to drink potentially contaminated water?
You are not only drinking contaminated water, but you are also polluting the environment with each water bottle you consume.
Here’s what some recent studies have discovered about whether or not your bottled water contains plastic.
A study by Orb Media concluded that 93 percent of bottled water contained microplastic contamination. Not good.
And so the question now becomes; what does this do to my body?
Unfortunately, the answer is unclear at the moment while researchers continue to conduct double blind studies. Common sense, however, would indicate that swallowing plastic is bad!
Water Bottles and The Environment
If you haven’t already heard, water bottles are harmful to the planet.
Every year, tons and tons of pounds of plastic are discovered in the ocean. As a result, the marine ecosystem is suffering and will may cease to exist in the near future.
Here are three numbers to consider the next time you drink bottled water…
In the United States alone, approximately 1500 plastic water bottles are used every second.
Currently, it is estimated that fish outnumber plastic particles in the world’s oceans by a factor of five (by weight).
Pieces of plastic will outnumber fish in the ocean by 2050.
There really are no positives to plastic water bottles.
Take care of your health and the environment by drilling a water well.
This ensures that your days of drinking plastic are over and there is one less family adding water bottles to the environment.
