Transcript of Water Bottles

Water Bottles The History The Bad The Good Water has been around for as long as we can remember
Commercial water sales began in France, 1824. In two years the king authorized the sale of water
The company started 1829. It was first bottled in earthenware. It did not become glass bottled until the 1920's
Soon after other European countries started to follow their lead and start selling their own water
San Pellegrino(company in Italy) packed 35,343 bottles in 1899.
Then in 1908 it was being exported to places around the world including remote places Water and the Economy So what happens to that water bottle we spent so much time making and we have finished with it? You could refill it. The only problem with that is that the bottle can be infected by bacteria if you don't wash it. If you do it can be damaged and leak chemicals or the heat(if you put it in the dish washer) could ruin the bottle totally. If you decide to just throw it in the garbage then you might just want to wait a second. It takes a plastic water bottle almost over 1,000 years to decompose in a landfill. Also in some countries the plastic water bottles just get dumped there and there is just mountains of water bottles everywhere. You can also incinerate them but they polute the air (plus who has an incinerator?). You could recycle it which is probably the most eco-friendly way. Really only 20% are recycle out of all of the water bottles produced. Also the majorody of them aren'teven used to make new water bottles but things that are cheaper. Like dollar store items.

Now another part of this we haven't talk about is the water. The big part of water bottles. The truth is that water bottle companies only have to test their water every week! So they could be putting anything into the water during that time. Also 40% of the water comes from the tap! Seriously! Bottle water is a quick convenient way to get water then and there.It can be helpful like during a drought or a natural disaster. It can also be helpful for traveling. For example: On an airplane where they dont have a large water supply. Really in my opioion there is not much use for bottled water except if proper water can not be got at the time. There are better and safer ways to get water. Which are also economic too. You could buy a Metal water Bottle which is more economic than going out and buying a fresh new water bottle. Also you can by a "Brita Filter" which filters the chlorin out of tap water and makes it safe for you to drink. It can be put ina type of container that you put the water in and let it sit to filter it out or you can just get one that goes right on the tap. Some of the sad things about what you pay for when you buy a plastic water bottle is that is that 90% of what you pay just goes to the bottle(eg. Lid, Label). Extras -On March 22 it is world water day

Usually there made of petrolium and other various chemicals but a new eco-friendly bottle called PET is being used but has not manage to be really popular. Once the plastic is made it is shipped to a water bottle producing plant in sheets. Once it is recived they then cut and size to the right size for a water bottle. After they are made into a tube they are ready to be put into the mold. When they are put in the mold it heats the plastic and forces air through it so the plastic gets pushed up against the walls of the mold. After the mold stops heating it but keeps forcing air through the bottle. As it cools the more air being force in makes sure that it takes shape of the mold. This method makes sure they "obtain minimum waste' in making water bottles.

This whole process uses up 3L for every 1L plastic water bottle pack and over 1.5 million barrels of oil. The 1.5 million barrels is only the amount that is used up to transport it. About 1 third of the bottle uses oil to make it. This could power the U.S for 100,00 years.
