Eco Friendly Drink Bottles
As the environmental damage caused by plastics become more widely known, the demand for eco friendly drink bottles have continued to rise. Plastic bottles account for a large bulk of the waste floating in water systems across the globe. They are non-biodegradable so they stick around for decades after they were thrown away. They pollute the waters and endanger the lives of marine animals. It is clear that change needs to happen.
Governments can make the most impact by implementing laws that could incentivize green products and services while penalizing damaging ones. Companies can help by switching to better practices and creating viable alternatives. There are now options that use glass and stainless steel for the body, while materials like bamboo are used for the cap. Of course, they would need the help of consumers to make such products viable in the long term.
