Plastic Particles in Most Water Bottles

ParticlesDo you have plastic particles in your water bottle? According to a new study, 93% of all plastic water bottles have plastic particles in them.

Water is life. Some bottled water companies have brands like pure life and essential with good reason. But the vulnerabilities that come with mass producing include a cheap substance to deliver the vital hydration. Enter the plastic water bottle.

Throughout the years, more and more we’ve seen water bottles and the majority of hands. But we’ve also seen reports that plastics leak substances that don’t organically play well with the body. One example of this substance is BPA.

So what can we do about this environmental challenge to minimize plastics leaking into our water and still provide a handy, cost-effective way to provide an ample supply of water in a bottle crafted from the Great Pacific Garbage Patch?

One company has teamed up with Starbucks to capitalize on the overwhelming  in the Pacific Ocean. They’ve put it to good use by re purposing the refuse in the ocean. By combining that with a glass water bottle, they are both helping the environment and being kind to your body with a reusable glass water bottle. Don’t be part of the problem, the part of the solution and drink up with a Soma Water Bottle.

Of course  Amazon provides a surfeit of water bottles options for you. If you don’t want to hop down to your local Starbucks, you can pick it up online here. Also, if you you choose to forgo the plastic route entirely, there’s always a good bet with stainless steel bottles.
