Used bottles and cans often end up in landfills or worse, in our lakes and oceans or on the ground as litter! This pollution hurts birds, turtles and other wildlife.
It takes more energy to produce, fill, ship and recycle plastic water bottles than it does to bring drinking water to your tap! Transportation of water by trucks burns fossil fuels (like coal and oil) and releases CO2 into the atmosphere, which is one of the leading causes of climate change.
The most planet-friendly thing you can do is drink tap water in a reusable bottle!
By bringing a reuseable water bottle to school you’re taking a stand against climate change!
Find a reusable water bottle in a size and colour that you like, you can even use a glass juice bottle.
Ask your teacher if they can create a water bottle challenge for your class. This will encourage other students to bring their reusable water bottles every day too!
