Ban the Production and Purchase of Bottled Water

Bottled water harms the environment throughout the product life cycle, from the oil used to create the plastic bottle, all the way to its disposal. The production of plastic water bottles used in the United States takes enough oil and energy to fuel one million cars. 80% of water bottles end up in landfills where they sit for thousands of years or end up in incinorators where they are burned and turned into poisonous pollution. Over one billion people around the world do not have access to clean drinking water; however, cities all around the world spend millions of dollars to deal with the tremendous amount of plastic bottle pollution. This money should be better spent on improving the clean water supply for those in need.
