In the U.S. 50 billion plastic water bottles are purchased each year. This averages out to about 13 plastic water bottles per person, per month. One single-use plastic water creates a lot of waste too. 

A reusable water bottle can help cut down on the millions of pounds of plastic waste found in oceans and landfills. Using a reusable water bottle can save around 156 plastic water bottles from ending up in landfills and our oceans. (The fish will thank you.)
