Guilt Free Drinking

     I admit I drink way too many beverages out of a plastic bottle.  My plastic recycling bin in my house is twice as big as any other recycling container and it is always overflowing.  I think I have tried to cut down on my consumption of plastic bottled beverages but it just isn’t easy for me to do. 

     No one said it was going to be easy.  I want guilt free drinking so I am going to do my best and encourage those in my household to do their best to cut down on drinking from plastic bottles.  Here I go again about my Diet Coke consumption, yes I am an addict and I have no plans on kicking my habit thank you.  I read somewhere about how making your own soda at home can help the environment because you don’t use aluminum or plastic.  There are special bottles you can use and re-use.  I kind of doubt it would come out like Diet Coke and I really don’t have time to make my own pop so maybe I will have to work on my consumption of water from plastic bottles.

      We have a big water dispenser and I have numerous cups and water bottles I can fill.  This is by far better for the environment than using single use bottles.   It just isn’t quite as fast or convenient to take the time to fill a water bottle as it is to just grab a bottle and go.  Maybe I should take my fancy Sigg water bottle, fill it and then keep it in the fridge for those times when I’m in a hurry.  That sounds like it might work. 

     It would really help me sleep better at night knowing other people were going to cut down on their waste too.  If you want to try drinking from a Sigg water bottle then you can order one from our online store and receive free shipping.  If we all make an effort then I think I’ll be able to drink my Diet Coke from my 20 ounce bottle relatively guilt free.

  •  Americans throw away 25,000,000 plastic beverage bottles every hour. 
  • Recycling plastic saves twice as much energy as burning it in an incinerator. 
  • Recycling one aluminum can saves enough energy to run a television for three hours. 
  • If 10,000 people made their own soda at home, we’d keep 6,000,000 aluminum cans out of the garbage each year.
