Plastic Bottled Water

I feel the 2 biggest concerns regarding our future on EARTH are: Plastic and Population!

The concept of the bottled water has been around for over two centuries. When plastic was invented, the world saw a rise in the production of plastic bottled water because it is convenient.

Most of all, the price of each unit is relatively cheap, making it easy for people to buy and consume it. However, the lack of regulatory controls has raised questions regarding its safety for consumers.

In recent years, researchers found that most of the plastic bottled water contains microplastic. The industry wasn’t heavily regulated as compared to tap water.

On top of that, the massive numbers of plastic bottled water produced and sold each year have raised concerns regarding the impact of these plastic bottles on the environment. The lifetime cost for each plastic bottle is far greater than we could imagine.

Climate change has become serious in the recent years where winters gets freezing cold and summer is getting hotter. Producing plastic water bottles are one of the key contributor.
