World Water Day is observed internationally to appreciate water and learn more about water issues. Find out how My AQUA Bottle can be a valid and sustainable alternative to Single-use disposable plastic water bottles.
World Water Day
World Water Day is held annually on 22 March as a means of focusing attention on the importance of freshwater and advocating for the sustainable management of freshwater resources. It is about taking action to tackle the global water crisis, in support of Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 6: water and sanitation for all by 2030.
The environmental damage caused by discarded plastic water bottles
Discarded plastic water bottles are an enormous waste and represent a huge environmental issue as only a small percentage of plastic waste gets recycled. The rest is either burned or dumped. Below are just a few negative impacts of single-use plastic bottles.
Disposable plastic items don’t biodegrade. They just break down into micro particles that contaminate our environment. And as those bottles slowly break down in the environment over years and years, they release tiny microplastic fragments which are eaten by living organisms. These include ocean plankton, which are at the base of the global food chain. Ocean plankton are literally being replaced by plastic.
Moreover, most single-use water bottles are made of the plastic resin polyethylene terephthalate, which has been shown to leach the heavy metal antimony and certain phthalate endocrine disruptors. This leaching is increased when the bottles are exposed to temperature extremes and/or used repeatedly.
Finally, the single-use plastic trade and resulting plastic pollution disproportionately affects poorer and disadvantaged communities.
