Today is Earth Day, and based on the sheer volume of plastic bottled water sales, we can happily report that Americans seem more dedicated to hydration than ever.
While we are all for healthy and hydrated living, our over-reliance on plastic bottled water is just a tad troubling.
As you surf the Internet or your news feeds today, you’ll no doubt see plenty of well-meaning ‘Ban The Bottle’ messages. While we agree with the sentiment, you’ll have a very difficult time banning anything that has become a habit. A habit cannot be banned. A habit must be broken.
For this Earth Day, don’t try to go cold turkey on your plastic bottled water habit. You’ll do a great deal to help if you just gradually cut back, especially if your friends follow suit. (Of course, we may be able to offer a little help from some filtered fridge water or a nice, eco-friendly water bottle )
