he delicate balance of the world’s ecosystems is dependent on water resources distributed over its surface. Environmental impacts of bottled beverages include environmental cost, wasteful use of resources and pollution. Bottled water may be delivered to homes and workplaces in large plastic bottles that must then either be recycled or disposed of through landfills, taking up space and contributing to pollution. Bottling companies working together can significantly reduce the environmental impact caused by production, packaging and transportation of bottles that will ever only be used for a few minutes before being discarded. It has come to light that there are more than 17 billion disposable plastic bottles sold every year in the U.S alone so it’s fair to say we need many other ways to address this issue.
