Last weekend I saw a woman with four cases of water bottles in her cart. Apparently she hasn’t seen the new study about microplastics. The study estimates that people who drink bottled water ingest 90,000 additional microplastic particles annually, compared to those of us who drink tap water. The study looked at the estimated number of plastic particles that humans ingest every year, and it’s not pretty. There’s plastic in everything we eat and drink. The average adult consumes 50,000 pieces of microplastics a year, for kids, it’s 40,000. We don’t know what these plastic particles do to our bodies yet. Is that enough to make you reconsider all of the plastic packaging that surrounds your food and beverages?
Just another reason to stop buying water bottles
