DAY 3 – FRIDAY 27 FEBRUARY:
“More than 150 billion litres of bottled water are sold worldwide every year.This contributes significantly to landfill and transport emissions. Say no to bottled water and drink tap water — buy a refillable washable bottle to use instead.”
My Sigg red sunray bottle (right) is still going strong, with just a few dents to show that it is well-used. Stainless steel bottles are also becoming popular since they’re aluminum-free and BPA-free. Or for a safe plastic (also BPA-free) lightweight gym bottle that also shows your election love: I picked up a Democratic National Convention bottle on sale on the Obama Biden web site (below left).
Today’s mitzvah: Save money as well as helping to save the environment. Check out reusable water bottles instead of single-use throwaway plastic.
