The PET (Polyethylene terephthalate) bottle is thus by far the most popular beverage packaging.
Researchers assume that by 2050 more plastics will be swimming in the sea than fish. This means that even more animals will die due to plastic parts being in their stomachs, and more will suffocate on plastic bags. Visualize fish swallowing microplastics instead of plankton. That’s a disaster for our ecosystem, unfortunately not enough people are reducing their use of plastics.
Every second 15’000 plastic bottles are being discarded and the horrific thing is that 80% ends up in landfills. They always say that the world will run out of oil, but why do they keep producing 17 million barrels of oil yearly!
It takes a lot of energy to recycle, because of that only 9.5% of plastic bottles are being recycled, which means it’s too low. Sadly 10% of the bottles will end up in the ocean.
How to Reduce Plastic Bottles
We recommend using a faucet water filtration system, which is the most convenient way in saving waste when it comes to plastic bottles.
Oftentimes, tap water is highly chlorinated, containing more contaminants, making it almost unbearable to drink.
With a faucet water filter you’ll find it much more economical and a lot healthier in the long run.
A plus point is the fact that you will no longer have to carry around heavy packages of water bottles anymore, hahaha…yay. 🙂

Why Should We Drink Water
Water is important if you want to live a healthy lifestyle, it’s basically our elixir of life. Drinking enough of it can help with preventing obesity along with aiding in a healthy metabolism. Unfortunately nowadays people are not paying enough attention to healthy drinking behaviours, they tend to drink many beverages that are high in carbohydrates/sugars which can result in obesity.
The Benefit of Drinking Water
- Concentration and attention
Our brain needs fluid for full performance capacity. Drinking water every day lowers your fatigue and drives your brain to optimal performance, it strengthens your memory and promotes concentration.
The kidney is one of the most important detoxification organs in the human body. It removes harmful substances and acids from the bloodstream and discharges them through urine, as long as your intake of fluids are adequate.
Water is the best laxative for our body. It washes the damp stool out of the intestine and enables a problem-free excretion. Another reason in avoiding unpleasant constipation.
- Prevents diseases
Drinking water every day reduces the risk of cancer and heart disease. If you drink enough water instead of soft drinks, you can strengthens your immune system.
- Prevent headaches
Headaches can also indicate a lack of fluid, it means you’re losing more water than you’re taking in.
- Skin benefit
Drinking a lot of water has a positive effect on our skin, it will become more clear and smooth.
- Weight control
Water alone doesn’t burn fat, but it’s better to choose water over soft drinks to cut out unnecessary sugar/carbs. Drinking a glass of water before each meal can help reduce the feeling of hunger causing you to eat less, therefore taking in fewer calories.
“Water is life, and clean water means health” – Audrey Hepburn
We tried many water filters and the Waterdrop 320-Gallon Long-Lasting Water Faucet Filtration System is by far the best one. The water comes out in a better volume than other filters and it is also very easy to switch from filtered to unfiltered water by rotating a smooth lever. We no longer taste the chlorine in our water, especially for coffee and tea drinkers such as ourselves, we can taste the quality along with purity. The result is you cannot beat the price for what you get.
