Everytime I find a product that will help me leave a smaller footprint on the planet, I'm a happy camper. It's an earthlust stainless steel water bottle I plan on keeping forever. I got mine at powderfin, but they are available at lots of places. I chose powderfin because they only work with manufacturers who employ environmentally conscious business practices.
Did you know there are over 2.5 Million plastic water bottles thrown away every hour? Less than 15% of water bottles are recycled and the rest end up in landfills where it takes up to 1000 years to degrade.
