Every day we all do something that most of us take for granted. We drink and use safe drinking water. Did you know that 1 out of 6 people lack access to safe drinking water? According to the World Water Council that is 1.1 billion people! Many of our friends in developing countries spend the greater part of their day seeking out clean drinking water.
In developed nations, we are spending billions of dollars buying bottled water even though we are provided clean drinking water right from our taps. Americans have become obsessed with drinking bottled water and this obsession has grown to an annual 8.6 billion gallons. People are paying up to 10,000 times the cost of tap water too. And you know what is super spooky? These plastic bottles are creating billions of pounds of oil based trash going into our landfills where they will stay for a thousand year lifespan.
