Globally, one million plastic bottles are purchased every minute and the number will jump up by 20% by 2021, creating an ecological emergency many campaigners anticipate will be as damaging as climate change itself.
New figures acquired by the Guardian newspaper uncovered the surge in demand for plastic bottles, the greater part, a trillion of which, will be sold every year until the decade’s over.
The demand, proportional to 20,000 bottles purchased each second, is driven by an evidently voracious need for bottled water and the innovation|of a western, urbanized “in a hurry” culture, in China and the Asia Pacific area.
The UK is in danger of becoming a ‘dumping ground’ for plastic after Brexit.
More than 480 billion plastic drinking bottles were sold in 2016 globally, in comparison to 300 billion 10 years prior. In the event hat they that they were set end to end, they would reach more than half way to the sun! By 2021 this will increment to 583.3 billion, as indicated by Euromonitor International’s global packaging report.
Most plastic bottles utilized for soda pops and water are produced using polyethylene terephthalate (Pet), which is exceedingly recyclable. In any case, as their use accelerates across the globe, endeavours to gather and reuse or recycle the bottles to prevent them from dirtying the seas, are just not keeping up.
In addition, most mineral waters bought in plastic bottles are contaminated by the toxins from the plastic itself such as estrogen and bpas, for that reason, in point of fact it is not recommended to drink water from plastic bottles, specially young children.
If you have to buy bottled water, stick to glass bottles always.
Bearing in mind that plastic water bottles are destroying our oceans it takes 1000 years for a plastic bottle to breakdown, and, that the water they contain is acidic and toxic why do people continue to buy bottled water?
It must be part of the brainwashing that comes from following main stream media!
In case you are not aware, human life relies on the ecosystem in the oceans to survive.
The ecosystem is being devastated by plastic garbage mainly from the water industry, selling a product that has ZERO health value at hugely over-inflated prices.
It has been calculated that depending on age, a person will spend approximately €30,000 on bottled water in a lifetime!
It seems we are decided on destroying the planet through our own ignorance!
One feasible solution that I propose is this.
