Degradation of plastic water bottles leads to the release of harmful chemicals. Reusing a plastic bottle might also provide a good breeding ground for bacteria. These often leave the body at a greater risk of absorbing the chemicals thus posing a great risk to general humanity. It is therefore advised to ban and get rid of them once and for all.
It's is a common argument against bottled water to say simply it is bad for the environment. Whilst I do not argue against bottled water I argue against the sale of bottled water. People should always be given access to fresh water as it essential for our survival. When we bottle it up and slap a price tag on it we begin to see problems. I believe we should be able to get water for free anywhere, anytime and the only payment the public should provide is via taxation. I believe this would motivate a healthier community and work to establish a way to be rid of a vast majority of corporate greed.
It is very bad for the environment when it gets to the dump it blows away and gets into oceans and lakes and the animals eat it they die from it and then it affects the food chain the plastic is also poisonous for you. So I say no do not keep it
Companies like Nestle are notorious for stealing water from poor people in 3rd world countries. The bottling industry is a horrible industry filled with abuse and rich people taking advantage of poor people. Sale of bottled water should be banned only to those large companies abusing people. I'd gladly pay more for water knowing it wasn't made the way it is now.
If we all recycled every problem around bottled water would be fixed instead of banning water bottles we could make it illegal to not recycle, This would make many more people recycle. If much more people recycle there would be much less trash in the ocean. Completely banning water bottles is ridiculous and would take forever to do but just making recycling a requirement would be fixed
Water, in general, is healthy to drink water regardless of whether form tap or bottle. The IWBA states that “ since 2000; approximately 73% of the growth in bottled water consumption has come from people switching from carbonated soft drinks. That the equivalent of avoiding an additional 280 calories per day.” people who were drinking soda were drinking it well because it was one of the only options bottled water became popular people stopped drinking soda and started drinking bottled water. Because people in America rely on convenience if we ban bottled water many people who buy bottled water will switch to soft drinks which, when drunk excessively, will lead to medical issues such as obesity and even cancer. If we ban plastic water bottles people will drink more unhealthy sodas.
Although it is proven that tap water is safe most of the time it doesn't mean the pipes it goes thoughts are. According to the article Lead in the Drinking Fountain “Tests soon revealed the presence of vinyl chloride, which is used to make PVC plumbing pipes and may be released carcinogen. The district conducted more tests last spring and found harmful lead levels at other San Diego schools as well. It’s not an isolated problem. In Los Angeles, the district has been working for years to identify contaminated fountains and lower the lead levels.” The tap water its self may not be contained but the lead and plastic in the pipes may leach into the water and make it unsafe to drink. If we were to ban plastic water bottles people might have to refill with contaminated waters where with water bottles you could bring more. Water bottles are the safest and reliable water source due to the fact that almost all bottled water is purified even if it is tap.
Many people do not recycle but easy could but most would not want water bottles to be completely banned. According to the IWBA “all bottled water containers whether plastic or glass is 100% recyclable”. This means if we all recycled every problem around bottled water would be fixed instead of banning water bottles we could make it illegal to not recycle, this would make many more people recycle. If much more people recycle there would be much less trash in the ocean. Completely banning water bottles is ridiculous and would take forever to do but just making recycling a requirement would be f
In conclusion, water bottles should not be banned because they promote good health, they are almost always safe and can always be recycled. It would be much harder to ban all water bottles than to make it illegal not to recycle. This would also have much more public support which is vital
Bottled water is a great source of hydration, if you know which brand your drinking. Some bottled water like Fiji brand is just purified tap water. You can tell this if there are the three letters, PWS on the bottle. That stands for public water supply. Brands like Poland springs are good to drink because they come straight from a spring in the earth. Also, taking away the right to buy water bottles would be taking away the right to have a reliable, healthy source of hydrating h2o.
The sale of bottled water should not be banned. Banning bottled water will not stop companies from producing another beverage and bottling it. Furthermore, bottled water is used by hikers, workers, and others on a daily basis. We have sufficient recycling options across the United States and need to use them.
I don't think that sale of water should be banned from the stores. There are many reasons behind this, hygine is one of them. We don't have clean drinking water every where we go. Lets say someone goes to six flags and need to drink clean water just because thats they are sick and needs to drink clean distiled water. In these cases we need bottled water
