Australian Water Filters
Stop buying plastic disposable water bottles and filter your water
Plastic bottles were first used commercially in 1947, but it was not until the early 1950s that high-density polyethylene was developed, and the price dropped, that they became commonplace. Now Europeans are the main consumers.
Pretty terrifying figures…
Around the world, a million plastic bottles are bought every single minute — and the numbers are increasing fast. In 2016, an incredible 480 billion plastic bottles were sold, and 80 per cent of them have ended up in the ocean or in landfill, where, according to experts, they will take between 400 and 1,000 years to decompose. Currently 17 million barrels of oil produce a year’s worth of plastic bottles — and that is the equivalent of fuel for about a million cars for a whole year. Another figure: it takes three times the amount of water to make a plastic bottle than to fill it! Recycling is on the rise though, at last, and plastic bottles are the most commonly recycled household plastics.
So although plastic water bottles may be portable, convenient and light, they are also very destructive. Worst of all, they kill millions of marine creatures — and the plastic residue is not doing human beings much good either.
Plastics consistently make up between 60 and 90 per cent of all marine debris studied
Please switch to eco-friendly reusable bottles now. Plastic pollution is very real and very serious. That means we really should all support bans of plastic shopping bags and straws, polystyrene foam, excess packaging — and plastic bottles. And we should learn about and encourage recycling.
