Using man-manufactured plastic water bottle to store our drinking water is not only destroying the planet, but also destroying our health. Plastic contains harmful chemicals like PCB (an oil and coal byproduct), DDT (a carcinogenic pesticide), and PAH (a coolant), but its most harmful chemical may, arguably, may be Bisphenol A, better known as BPA. Not only is the chemical composition of plastic water bottles a threat to our health, water bottles come at a huge cost for our environment, often being bottled, packaged, shipped and stored in various parts of the world before being shipped around the globe. The production of these plastic bottles alone creates a huge carbon footprint on our earth.
In addition, Drinking water from plastic water bottles strips the body of minerals and dehydrates you.
