A Reusable Water Bottle
  • Keep our children loving the planet! Especially
    during hot months, a reusable water bottle makes
    all the difference. Keep these facts in mind
  • In response to public concern, manufacturers have
    developed BPA-free reusable water bottles.
  • When you use a reusable water bottle, you help
    reduce the production of bottled beverages and
    therefore, the landfill and recycling burden of
    the bottles. 
  • Buying and using a reusable water instead of
    bottled water saves you money over the long term.
  • In fact, Greeniacs.com reports that bottled water
    can cost up to 10,000 times as much per gallon as
    tap water.
