Reusable Water Bottles

by Kaila Thieman

Using reusable water bottles may seem like a small step to helping our planet, but if we all use reusable water bottles, it could have a huge impact. When plastic isn't recycled, it can sit in a landfill for 1,ooo years before it decomposes completely. Even the process of making water bottles can hurt the enviroment because the chemicals can pollute the air and water. Not only do they hurt the earth, but the can hurt your health too. They contain the chemical BPA which has been liked to breast cancer, birth defects and Alzhiemer's disease. The best solution is to use water bottles that can be used many times without being thrown out.
