Is it finally time to recycle?
Drinking water after a game is a good thing to keep hydrated, much better than sugar loaded sports drinks. But does that water have to be in a plastic bottle that gets thrown away each week? Why not purchase an aluminum bottle, a reusable plastic bottle, or a thermos you can reuse over and over again.
What’s the big deal, you ask? It’s just a couple of bottles. Well, scroll down and make up your own mind.
WOW..THAT’S A LOT OF TRASH!
This equals 6,800 plastic water bottles thrown away in one year, filling up our landfills, and polluting the earth.
Now the amazing thing is this picture above is showing ONLY 34 TEAMS, assuming each player and ONLY one parent, drinks ONLY one bottle per game.
We have OVER 350 TEAMS! Meaning we could possibly throw away anywhere between 40,000 and 85,000 bottles out every year.
That could easily cover both large Sports Complex soccer fields two or three times over.
Something to think about…
