Moving Away from Plastic
Americans annually throw away more plastic, 27 million tons, than anything else except food (30 million tons). Only 8 percent of our plastic actually makes it to recycling centers. One of the biggest culprits are plastic bottles many of which are used for drinking water. I have been using a water filtering pitcher for some time to replace all those plastic bottles of water I used to purchase. If you are still purchasing cases of plastic bottles of water, I want to encourage you to transition to a water filtering system which could save up to 1800 bottles of plastic going to the landfill each year. Reducing the plastic we put in landfills is another way to love God, our neighbors and the earth.
