Go Green: Ditch the Plastic & WIN a Reusable Water Bottle!

Use a Reusable Water Bottle!

  • The next time you feel the urge to buy disposable water bottles, think about the pollution and waste it causes on the planet Earth.
  • Roughly 50 billion plastic water bottles end up in U.S. landfills every year. That is roughly 140 million every day – enough bottles to reach China and back. 
  • Plastic takes more than 700 years to decompose, and the amount of oil used to produce water bottles yearly could fuel more than 1 million cars for a year.
  • Let's stop buying plastic water bottles and start using reusable water botles!  We'll reduce our footprint and save the Earth for future generations!

I use my reusable bottles as they are much more durable and safer for my daughter
I also use dryer balls to cut down on chemicals and trash from dryer sheets
