We all know that hydration is important.
Trying to get through your day with a dehydrated body is like trying to take a 500 mile road trip with a couple ounces of gas in your tank: you’re probably going to break down at some point, and might even do permanent damage to your car.
The same thing goes for your body. That’s why we’re so passionate about getting Define water bottles into the hands of as many people as possible.
Our infused water bottles make it easy to stay hydrated by drinking delicious fruit-infused beverages!
However, many people reach for the disposable bottles of water that are sold for a dollar a pop at the grocery store. Sure, at face value, it might seem cheaper than a Define water bottle, but that’s because you’re not factoring in the environmental cost.
Here are some shocking facts about what our disposable bottled water habit is doing to the planet, courtesy of TheWorldCounts.com.
“There are a few brands whose water really comes from springs and mountain streams, but most are just tap water that’s been purified,” reports TheWorldCounts. Which means you’re paying for something that can be obtained for pennies in your kitchen and then creating plastic waste that will likely end up in the landfill.
That’s right, in order to create the plastic bottle that houses this water, and will most likely not be recycled, three liters of otherwise drinkable water is removed from the planet.
In the U.S alone, it takes 1.5 million barrels of oil to meet the demands. Burning this oil creates oil, water, and air pollution that contributes to climate change and makes people sick.
