Oil consumption is one of the main concerns of the environmental “Green” movement. It is a valuable and finite natural resource. Over the course of one year, 17 million barrels of oil are wasted in the production of plastic water bottles. That same amount of oil could be used for much more necessary and productive reasons. For example, the oil used for one year of water bottle production could be used to fuel 1,000,000 cars for that same year. By utilizing Back2Tap’s reusable stainless steel water bottles, we can do our part to help conserve our oil supply for future generations.
The consumption of oil releases carbon dioxide, a greenhouse gas, into Earth’s atmosphere and contributes to global warming. Power plants, cars, buildings, and factories release immense amounts of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. Driving a hybrid vehicle in one way to reduce both fuel consumption and harmful emissions. Surprisingly, water bottle production plants produce and release 2.5 million tons of unnecessary carbon dioxide into Earth’s atmosphere every year. By using reusable stainless steel water bottles from Back2Tap, we can do our part to reduce the rate of global warming. These stainless steel water bottles serve the same environmental purpose as hybrid vehicles. They help to reduce the amount of oil consumed and the amount of harmful emissions released into the atmosphere.
