Another reason why bottled water just sucks

I stopped providing bottled water over a year ago at Urbanfitt. There's still water but it's tap. I just think it's plain silly to pay for water that is held in toxic plastic and add to land fills with unnecessary waste.

I felt yet another victory against bottled water when I surfed my regular fitness and wellness sites for new info.

Plastic never goes away. It fragments into millions of tiny toxic pieces that are ingested by wildlife and enter the food chain we depend on.

Ocean scientisnt and Plastic Pollution Coalition advisor Wallace J Nichols shows how plastic pollution is contaminating even the most remote and beautiful corners of our world, like the sea turtle nesting island of Durai, Anambas Archipielago, Indonesia, where this video was filmed.
