THE COST OF BOTTLED WATERS
The statistics on the number of beverage bottles that end up in the landfill or waterways are staggering. Plastic bottles also may contain chemicals that get into our water, and then into our bodies. Get yourself a reusable bottle, like one of these from Leave Zero, or elsewhere.

16% of the pesticides used on crops are used on cotton. At least 8 of them are classified as hazardous by the World Health Organization and some can be found in our groundwater. Much of cotton is also GMO.
