Plastic water bottles are destroying the Earth and causing the deaths of animals all over the world. These plastic water bottles are ending up in the ocean floating around, and 80% of the plastic water bottles end up in landfills just sitting around. Sometimes, animals accidentally end up eating the caps of the bottles and most of the time unfortunately pass away.

To prevent these poor animals from dying or getting injured, get and/or support a reusable water bottle company. When you do this,  you are helping them sell and produce more reusable water bottles. You can also talk to school campuses to stop selling plastic water bottles. You could also talk to the companies that are making these single-use plastic water bottles and show them the effects of their products on the environment along with asking why they make single-use plastic water bottles. When you ask them the latte, it’s  harder for them to explain why they are creating these products. So get out there and save the environment!!!
