Current Topics: Bottled Water


Have you ever thought about how small sized plastic bottles impact the environment? Well, neither did I until I came across a few resources online... Actually, I used to think that buying these little bottles was better, not to mention more convenient. However, for the little amount of convenience comes a cost in not only trash, but more direct forms of pollution. What I didn't know was that a lot of the recycled bottles end up being exported to other countries to deal with. I guess it's "Out of sight, out of mind." This week, I would like you to think about whether small plastic bottles should be banned/reduced or not?
