Here are my reasons
1. Glass bottles are easier to clean and will not be thrown away easily. People will throw away plastic bottles after using, that's a waste.
2. Some of the plastic bottles are made with polycarbonate plastic. Polycarbonate plastic is now known to leach a compound called bisphenol A, or BPA, a chemical that mimics estrogen in the body and thus may cause developmental hormonal disruptions in young children.
These sources say that USA uses 1500 plastic bottles on average per second, and in 2010, 42.6 billion plastic bottles were produced. Glass bottles would be too costly and can't replace plastic. Many people will die of dehyration because of your stupid idea. Increase the character limit! http://www.treehugger.com... http://www.container-recycling.org...;
Plastic bottles are not hygiene enough. If the plastic bottles have a tiny gap, bacteria & viruses can hide in there and get into our body. Also,plastic is not biodegradable, but photodegradable. And in reality, most plastic does not ever disappear, but becomes long-lasting "plastic dust". When items like plastic bottles break down, they readily soak up (and release) toxins that then contaminate soil and water, as well as harming animals that ingest plastic fragments.
You will be the death of us all. If water was sold in plastic bottles, people would be forced to drink tap water and use other containers. You just can't produce enough glass to meet the demand. What's more, glass is extremely fragile and will break if I drop it, but plastic bottles won't. I know plastic bottles harm the environment, but glass bottles would take up even more energy and resources, which would do equal or more damage to the environment. Plastic bottles for life!
First, I think you don't know that price of bottled water is 1000 times more than tap water, and you can boil the tap water and pour it into glass cups.
Second, aluminium cans are also a choice to replace plastic and many drinks are packed with aluminium cans. They are large amount produced.
Lastly, plastic can't smelt so they exist in this world for more than 1000 years at least. But glass and aluminium can be smelted down and change into something new.
You can't say use aluminium, you have chosen to use glass to replace plastic bottles. Cans and bottles are nearly same. Plastic can be recycled and reused, glass once broken isn't reusable. Plastic is more durable than glass. Tap water needs to be boiled in certain areas to be drinkable, which would increase fuel consumption. Plus, plastic bottles can't be used as a weapon, but glass bottles can shed blood. Glass can reflect light and cause distraction, plastic can't. Overall, vote for con
