The U.S. alone uses 2 million plastic beverage bottles every 5 minutes.
40% of bottled water is simply tap water such as Aquafina and Dasani. The plastic bottles are made with BPA, one of the most toxic chemicals known, linked to breast and prostate cancer. High quantities of BPA leach into the bottled water.
Every square mile of the worlds oceans host 46,000 pieces of floating plastic. The mass of plastic pieces is 6x’s greater than zooplankton floating on the water’s surface.
