First plastic swap to make!

Updated: Aug 8, 2018

Plastic bottles take 450 years to decompose and even then will never fully disappear, they just break down into tiny little plastic particles that end up in our seas and water supplies.

A million plastic bottles are bought around the world every minute.. where do they go? They end up in our landfills and oceans of course, there is nowhere else for them to go.

But what's the alternative? I need to buy a drink when I'm out and about.

This is one of the easiest swaps we can make and it's not rocket science! Fill up a reusable bottle from the tap and.. em...that's it!

Just one person swapping to a reusable bottle will keep hundreds of plastic bottles out of our oceans and landfills

Is it not safer to drink bottled water?

Marketing for bottled water has been so successful that it has people convinced that drinking from the tap is bad for you. It turns out that it's just as safe as drinking from bottles and often these bottles are just filled up with tap water anyway! Crazy, eh! If your tap water doesn't taste so good though you can always get yourself a water filter. This wee video here is worth a watch and shows the secrets of the bottled water industry.
