A year’s supply of disposable water bottles is produced with 17 million barrels of oil, which also could fuel 1.3 million cars a year.
Each year, 38 billion water bottles end up in U.S. landfills. On top of that, plastic waste that washes into the ocean kills 1.1 million marine creatures annually.
By comparison, a reusable bottle allows you to lower the amount of waste in landfills and protect animals and their natural habitats.
In addition, a reusable bottle can save you up to $1,800 a year for the recommended eight glasses of water a day.
