Did you know that you can actually purchase a water bottle that can help the environment? It's true! Purchasing reusable water bottles, and then actually using them again and again, helps to reduce your carbon footprint, saving the earth!When we purchase throw away plastic bottles of water, we are, of course, increasing the amount of waste in landfills, because only 12% of plastic water bottles are ever recycled. Typically, consumers pitch them in the trash. Even if you do recycle your plastic water bottles, there is waste. Energy is wasted to both produce and recycle that plastic bottle. But if you buy custom water bottles that you will continue to use again and again, you will cut out that energy waste, and cut back on the amount of garbage in our landfills. And did you know that bottled water actually costs hundreds of times the price of tap water? So not only are you saving the environment, but you are saving yourself a great deal of money in the long run--money that is sure to do you more good elsewhere!

You can also choose water bottles that suit your personality--opt for artsy bottles, colorful bottles or perhaps a bottle that says something that expresses you? Additionally, look for accessories, like sheaths, that will cover your bottle and keep the cold stuff colder! Worried about the state of your tap water?
