People are buying a million plastic bottles every minute around the world. Less than 10% of those bottles are recycled, and the convenient containers take at least 400 years to decompose naturally. Bottled water isn’t necessarily a healthy option for hydration, either. Consumer Reports published findings of unsafe levels of arsenic in some bottled water brands. Help reduce the plastic pileup by investing in a high-quality reusable bottle. Look for one that is easy to clean to avoid the accumulation of harmful microbes. Stainless steel and light-weight ceramic containers help keep beverages cold or hot for longer than many plastics.
