The Problem With Bottled Water Is the Bottle
One million plastic bottles are sold around the world each minute. Most are used for bottled water, and most end up in the trash. As demand grows, especially in China, so does the bottle problem. According to environmental watchdog Euromonitor, if the present rate of consumption is not reduced, humans will use an estimated half a trillion plastic bottles a year by 2021. The French mineral water brand Evian is part of the problem, but is working on a plan to address it through a new approach. The company plans to use 100 percent recycled plastic by 2025 and to partner with a nonprofit focused on collecting ocean plastic.
