Awareness on sustainability was brought forward during the pandemic and many incorporated it into their daily lives. Resulting in opting for reusable water bottles instead of convenient single-use ones.
Multiple studies agree that buying reusable water bottles is an alternative to single-use plastic bottles; precisely averting 1,500 plastic bottles from ending up in the sea or landfill (between the span of 1 year). Might not sound like a lot but imagine if your kitchen is filled with that amount of bottles yearly, you’ll soon suffocate. On the bright side, reusable water bottles can last for several years of good use. Whatever the situation, school, university, gym or work you need to stay hydrated always.
But eventually, the water bottle served its purpose and it’s time to dispose of it but how do we do it sustainably? It doesn’t add up to dispose of a seemingly eco-friendly product to the landfill. Most common reusable water bottles are either made from Metal or Plastic.
To understand which grade/ type you’re dealing with, Plastic normally has a recycling triangle to indicate it as for Metal, if you’re confused between stainless steel or aluminum. Test it using a magnet, magnetic = stainless steel / non-magnetic = aluminum.
