HOW TO HYDRATE WITHOUT PLASTIC WATER BOTTLES
Our body comprises more water, about 70% of body mass as an adult male and about 60% of body mass for an adult woman. Dehydration over 2% of one’s total body mass negatively affects morale and the willingness to work. A regular water intake is needed if you want to be the best you can be.
Unfortunately, we may not have easy access to a supply of drinking water when away from home. Hence, water bottles are an essential part of our daily lives. However, it is important to focus on regular hydration without resorting to a disposable plastic water bottle, even though disposable water bottles have infiltrated society and become the norm.
single-use plastic water bottles
Of truth, single-use plastic water bottles are not needed in the environment. Even though plastic water bottles are technically recyclable, the majority are not recycled. Disposable plastic bottles are an enormous waste and environmental issue. Over 40 billion single-use plastic bottles are used yearly, and about 80% remain unrecycled. They end up in landfills, either as litter on land, being incinerated or in waterways. As those water bottles slowly decompose in the environment over years and years, they release tiny microplastic fragments eaten by living organisms. These include ocean plankton, which is at the base of the global food chain. Ocean plankton is being replaced by plastic.
Non-plastic reusable water bottles
It’s easy nowadays to find non-plastic reusable water bottles. But, as the world is becoming increasingly conscious of the effect of single-use plastic water bottles and plastic pollution, reusable bottles remains an environmentally friendly alternative. Nowadays, taking a portable, reusable water bottle with you at all times is as important as wearing a pair of shoes when you go for a walk or wearing a winter jacket when it’s snowing outside. Fill your reusable bottle with tap water wherever you might be and make it a habit. We can help you out with some high-quality options we love.
