We all know the long term effects of using plastic bottles of the environment, but sadly not many people take in to consideration the damage the actual plastic does to our bodies prior to being used, then dumped as waste.
Plastic drinking bottles contain a cocktail of chemicals, some of which even interfere with hormones in the body. These chemicals include BPA or Bisphenol-A among a long list of others. These poisonous pollutants can leak out in to bottled water especially when exposed to heat. Some of these chemicals are possible endocrine disruptors.
A lot of us leave our water bottles in the car for several hours, especially dangerous here in Australia with the warm climate accelerating the process of these chemicals being released into the drinking water.
By purchasing reusable water bottles not only are helping our planet but we are also improving our health benefits too. These 2 reasons alone are enough to “GO GREEN”!!
NEXT TIME YOU GO TO GRAB A PLASTIC BOTTLE OF WATER, PLEASE THINK BEFORE YOU BUY!!
