Pollution & Waste
Plastics Harmful to Health
All those bottles
- The manufacturing of water bottles can release harmful chemicals
- Most plastic bottles are made of polyethylene terephthalate (PET) ~ Recent studies have shown that reusing bottles made of PET can in fact be dangerous. PET was found to break down over time and leach into the beverage when the bottles were reused. The toxin DEHA also appeared in the water sample from reused water bottles. DEHA has been shown to cause liver problems, other possible reproductive difficulties, and is suspected to cause cancer in humans.

Plastic Bottle Production
Transportation of bottles
Transportation of H20
Transportation to selling location
Transportation to dump
Sourcing oil for Plastic Production
1 BILLION people lack access to clean, safe drinking water ~ the bottled water industry continues to increase this number.

Its estimated by scientists, based on current drought trends, by 2030 ~ 2/3 of the world will be in the same situation.

Access to water should not be determined by those whom have the $$$ to pay for it ~ Bottling and Selling water should NOT be part of that equation.
- Only 1% of ALL water on Earth is drinkable.
- Bottle water companies (Nestle, Coca Cola, Pepsi) are trying to purchase community water ways (lakes, rivers, streams) for the use in bottled water production.
- This means: monopoly and privatization over natural water ways. Allowing them the total control of pricing and quality.
Non-Profit Organization focused on the protecting and preserving marine habitats for sea turtles through plastic clean up efforts and encourages the community to choose to not use any single use plastic products.
Connects academics and science with action oriented groups, to foster citizen-based water stewardship while building connections between water quality, resource sustainability, climate change and biodiversity.
Creates grassroots community engagement to secure and protect water sources while advocating progressive water policy that empowers individuals to be water educated. 4Rs: Refuse, Reuse, Reduce, Recycle

Any Questions?
Remember: When the customer purchases a water bottle, they get to choose which non-profit they would like their purchase to support! Don't forget to ask!
