Do you know why you should drink from glass water bottles? It’s not because Gisele Bundchen does. It’s because drinking out of reusable glass, as opposed to plastic, can benefit both you and the environment. Find out how as you read on.
How Does Drinking from Glass Benefit the Environment?
Plastics and other disposable materials have revolutionized the way we live. Unfortunately, the convenience of using something once and then throwing it away has a pretty significant downside. For starters, roughly 2.7 million tons of plastic is used every year to manufacture disposable drinking bottles. And, since only about 1% of all plastic gets recycled, the remaining bottles end up in landfills. In the US alone, consumers purchase about 29.8 billion plastic water bottles each year, with 8 out of 10 of them ending up in landfills.
Add in the fact that it will take about 500 years for a plastic water bottle to break down and you can begin to see the problem pretty quickly.
How Does Drinking from Glass Benefit Your Health?
Drinking from a glass water bottle isn’t healthy because of something you are putting into your body, so much as what you aren’t putting in it by avoiding plastic.
Glass doesn’t contain harmful chemicals (BPA, phthalates, PVC, Polycarbonate, etc.) that are commonly used in the manufacture of plastic water bottles. Therefore, you needn’t worry about nasty chemicals leeching into your water.
Have you ever filled a plastic bottle with water only to have it taste weird? Sometimes it’s due to the plastic, and sometimes it’s due to what you had in the bottle before. Whatever the case, glass is taste-neutral, meaning that when you drink from a glass water bottle, you’ll taste only cool, clean, refreshing water – not residue from the morning’s orange juice.
