DRINK WATER WITH STYLE AND RESPONSIBILITY

Posted in Uncategorized by stylecouch on October 27, 2009

I know I have mentioned earlier the rediculous consume of bottled water bu is it not ironic that in many parts of the world there is no clean drinking water for the population and in the parts where we have pure clean water we tend to drink water out of infected fashion plastic bottles??

“Everybody’s plastic, but I love plastic. I want to be plastic.” This Andy Warhol quoted was made in the 60s in a time were people did not realize which kind of problems plastic would cause in the future!

There are several reasons not to drink water out of plastic bottles. A controversial chemical used in many plastic products may remain in the body longer than previously thought. Bisphenol-a or BPA is widely used in the making of the hard, clear and nearly unbreakable plastic. Scientists say these toxins are causing obesity, infertility and even worse.

Moreover plastic should seriously be considered a new source of chemical pollution in the ocean. A vast swath of the Pacific, twice the size of Texas, is full of a plastic stew that is entering the food chain.

Earthlust has made a cool alternative to the plastic bootles. Their bottles are handmade stainless steel bottles with limited designs! In the site you will also find a lot of interesting links about our plastic fantastic world!

    We all know disposable water bottles are wasteful and bad for the environment, yet their production is growing rapidly everywhere. Just 20 years ago the market for plastic water bottles was practically nonexistent, but today we produce billions of these completely unnecessary products. There can be only one sane response, plastic water bottles must be banned!
