Here’s the thing about disposable plastic water bottles: They make you look smug and wasteful. It’s true. Just watch this satirical video by bobble which focuses on a fake water-bottle brand, Once.
Vanity aside, there are so many other reasons to stop using single-use water bottles. For one, it is straight up terrible for the environment and and there is NO evidence that bottled water is better for you. In fact, it may actually be less safe than tap water. Nearly half of all bottled water is reprocessed tap water, sold at prices up to 3,000 times higher than consumers pay for tap water (Slate magazine even went so far as to call bottled water a scam). Even before the additional processing, the water had already met federal water-quality standards.
But Americans still manage to use 50 billion plastic water bottles each year, and recycle less than half of those. We’ve partnered with the leader in sustainable and stylish drinking solutions, bobble, to #EndTheTrend of single-use water bottles.
I’ve been using BPA-free bobble water bottles for years now and I love Including them with gifts to encourage others to do the same. My new favorite bobble product, Infuse, tags along with me everywhere I go – meetings, subway, yoga at Sacred Sounds in Greenwich Village, hiking, Pure Barre in Columbus circle, weekend trips in the car, repeat. Its smart and stylish design allows me to not only filter my water but infuse it with my favorite creative fruit and veggie concoctions (I’ve been on a blood organge and lime kick but strawberries are fun and easy, too).
Join Eco-Chick and bobble and help us to #EndTheTrend of single-use water bottles.
