By using reusable water bottles you will help you live a healthier life, save money, and take care of the environment.
Health Benefits of Water
Water flushes toxins out of vital organs, carries nutrients to your cells and provides a moist environment for ear, nose and throat tissues. Dehydration occurs when you don’t have enough water in your system for your body to carry out normal functions. A common side effect of dehydration is a lack of energy.
How Much Water Does Your Body Need?
Water is essential for good health. Individual needs vary but for the average adult male, an adequate intake of water is about 3 liters or 6.5 pints (16 fl. oz.). For the average women, the recommended consumption of water is about 2.2 liters or 3.5 pints (16 fl. oz.) of water per day.
Bottled water is expensive! The big bottled water companies (beverage companies) simply take a cheap source of water (municipal water) run it through a Reverse Osmosis System, Ozonator, Carbon Filtration, etc, and bottle it for huge profits. At roughly $1 to $2 per 16 oz. bottle, you can save from $3.50 to $13 per day by using a reusable water bottle. Over the course of a year, the savings can add up, roughly an average of $3000 per year per person.
Protect The Environment
Just think about every time you go to the store, fridge or cooler to grab a new bottle of water. Where does that bottle go? Most likely a landfill, possibly recycled or washed out into the ocean. How much energy does it take to make a disposable bottle? How many times did the bottle have to be transported/shipped? If one was to consume the recommended daily water consumption the plastic bottle usage works out to 4 to 7 bottles per day which equates from 1,460 to 2,555 bottles per year. That’s a lot of plastic bottles… what a waste. Use a reusable water bottle! It just makes sense.
