Americans buy nearly 1 billion bottles of water every week—an average of three bottles per week for every man, woman, and child in the United States. And after the water is gone, only 22% of those plastic water bottles are recycled. Most of them end up in landfills where the plastic can take centuries to break down—but never fully biodegrade.
Is your brand part of the problem—or the solution?
