Our addiction to plastic is coming back to bite us. It no longer just affects wildlife and the environment. It also affects us now too. New research from the State University of New York (SUNY) has found that a large percentage of bottled water being sold to the public contains micro plastics! 93 percent of water they examined had micro plastic in them. The water bottles were from all around the world and from all different brands.
Many people believe that bottled water is cleaner than tap water but as you can see this is not the case. Just drink from the tap or fill up a reusable bottle of water for when you go out. You will be doing the environment and yourself a massive favour. It is also important that we ditch other single use plastic items like plastic straws, plates, knifes and forks. Instead of using these items we can use reusable ones. And for straws it is even simpler. Just don't use it, drink out of the cup. Every single item that is saved from landfill matters and makes a difference. Together we can stop the plastic problem and create a better future for the planet and us.
