Bottled water remains the fastest selling beverage in the USA, even though much of the country’s tap water is potable. Even though we use different kinds of plastics, plastic bottles play a major role in our day to day activities. Plastic bottles are preferred by most people because they are usually lighter and do not break easily like glass materials or bottles.
Fortunately plastic is one of the materials that can be recycled after use. Plastics are made from oils which are a finite resource we are using up. If reused these materials can avoid other raw materials being used. By recycling plastic bottles almost four barrels of oil can be saved.
