How To Reduce Your Water Footprint

Last weekend was the annual International Coastal Clean Up. Over 500,000 volunteers in 80 countries rolled up their sleeves and picked up rubbish from beaches.

While I could not get out to a local beach to help, I did follow the many people on Instagram, who were taking photos of the waste collected. A photo by one clean up team showed a small mountain of plastic water bottles. It was not a photo from a country where water is unsafe to drink. The empty water bottles were collected from a beach where tap water is safe and abundant.

How To Reduce Your Water Footprint

It is fantastic that there are selfless people who get out there to pick up rubbish, like plastic water bottles. But really these people should not have to pick up after anyone. So please share the graphic below, and let's teach those who don't understand the wide reaching impact a plastic bottle of water has.

Let's ditch plastic water bottles and invest in refillable water bottles that we can use everyday for the rest of our lives. 

Buying a bottle that can be used over and over is one of the easiest ways to reduce your water footprint. 

Let's give those 500,000+ volunteers less plastic water bottles to pick up next year.

  1. I have had 2 different plastic water bottles and I've had the same issue which has been their downfall.. Butterfingers. I have dropped them both only to have the base break on the first bottle so i saved the lid and found another bottle base to replace it, only to recently have the lid break because I have dropped that!

    I'm going to switch to aluminium next..
