5 reasons to switch to reusable bottles

Posted on September 17 2018


Save water and stay healthy by using reusable water bottles in your everyday life. 

Below are 5 main reasons you should stop buying single-use water bottles and refill your own safe BPA-free reusable bottle to enjoy on the go.

1. Reusable Water Bottles are the Healthier Choice

Single-use plastic water bottles and other plastic refillable bottles often contain the chemical, Bisphenol A (BPA) which can be detrimental to your health, switch to a BPA-free refillable bottle to ensure you are taking care of your health and well-being. 

2. Save Money with ‘Green’ Water Bottles

Australians spend millions of dollars every year on single-use plastic water bottles. Refillable BPA-free bottles are a cost-effective way to save money and keep you hydrated on the go.

3. Reduce Waste and protect the environment with a reusable water bottle

The single-use plastic water bottles that are thrown into landfill don’t breakdown or biodegrade for over 450 years [1] and contribute to ocean pollution, killing approximately 1.1 million marine-life animals every year [2]

4. Save energy

It takes approximately 17 million barrels of oil to create one year’s supply of bottled water, that energy could power over 1 million cars a year or over 180,000 homes [2]. Producing disposable plastic bottles releases over 2 million tons of carbon dioxide into the earth’s atmosphere every year contributing to climate change [2].  

5. Control your water source with a reusable BPA-free bottle

Know exactly where your water is coming from and have the choice to fill your bottle with filtered water. Purchase a refillable filtered bottle for your water cooler like the one included in Aqua Cooler's Odyssey Series Eco Package.
