LET'S TALK TRASH1 Million Plastic Bottles Are Used
Every Single Minute
Bottled water is healthy and convenient, but single-use plastic bottles are wreaking havoc on our environment, and especially our oceans.
Of plastic never makes it to a recycling bin. Most bottles end up in landfills and oceans.
Plastic doesn't get recycled, it gets downcycled into lower quality materials.
By 2050, there will be more plastic than fish in the ocean by weight.
Over 267 marine species have been impacted by ocean plastic pollution. This includes whales, turtles, and most seabirds.
Plastic never goes away. It breaks down into smaller and smaller pieces that get ingested by marine animals. Yuck!
Plastic pieces make their way up the food chain and onto your plate. Plastic soup, anyone?
Plastic drink bottles
Straws & stirrers
But Why is Open Water the Best Alternative?
ALUMINUM IS BEST
Empty aluminum beverage containers are recycled more than twice as often as their plastic, glass, and carton counterparts.
By the way, aluminum's industry-wide recycling rate is nearly 70% (that covers beverage packaging plus other industries like cars and building materials).
Open Water uses an average of 73% post-consumer aluminum in every bottle and can. Other packaging materials (including some aluminum options) don't fare so well on this front.
Aluminum recycling is a true closed loop. That means that the material from one bottle can go right back into making another identical bottle, which doesn't happen with plastic and cartons.
Open Water is the 1st and only certified Climate Neutral bottled water brand. We offset all of the emissions created not only by our packaging, but by our company operations as a whole.
