Water bottles have a detrimental effect on the environment, reports Call A Cooler, leading to the need for alternative ways of obtaining fresh, clean, drinking water
Perth, WA -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/05/2015 -- According to National Geographic Kids, individuals save energy when they recycle a water bottle. The amount of energy saved when a water bottle is recycled is enough to power a 60-watt light bulb for a period of six hours, yet only one in six water bottles actually make it to the recycling plant. Call A Cooler offers a free seven day in home or in office trial of their water coolers to reduce the amount of plastic making it to landfills across the country.
"Clean Up reports one bottle of water costs approximately $2.50, yet individuals who choose to switch to a water cooler find they spend less than $1.60 a day for clean, clear water. Cold, filtered water from a water cooler benefits an individual's health, while also protecting the environment. When one chooses to take advantage of this offer, they often find they prefer the taste of this water, along with the savings they achieve," Mark Martin, spokesperson for Call A Cooler, declares.
The environmental impact of bottled water can never be discounted. The 2010 Clean Up Australia Rubbish Report stated one in ten items removed on that day was a plastic drinking bottle. Experts believe it may take as long as 1,000 years for a plastic bottle to disintegrate in a landfill, and those bottles which make it into the ocean may kill marine life. Animals are unable to distinguish between food and pieces of a plastic bottle and often die after consuming a portion of a plastic bottle which made it into their food supply.
Individuals concerned about the environment need to make the switch to water coolers. Those who do so may use aluminum or stainless steel bottles to hold their water. Avoid plastic water bottles when possible, as bacteria may build up in these bottles due to their porous nature. They cannot be cleaned thoroughly to prevent this build up, leading to potential harm to one's health, Martin explains.
Water coolers offer numerous other benefits. The production of a single liter of bottled water requires the use of three liters of water, and many believe the water supply is finite. In addition, transporting these bottles requires the use of fossil fuels, which are also harmful to the environment. This doesn't take into account the amount of petroleum used to produce the actual bottles, of concern as petroleum is a natural resource which is diminishing rapidly.
"Turn to water coolers to reduce your impact on the environment. Humans cannot be too careful when it comes to protecting the world we live in. Now is the time to make the switch, as one can try Call A Cooler with no risk, thanks to the free seven day trial," Martin proclaims.
