BAN THE BOTTLE
As a species, we drink more than $100 billion in bottle water every year! That's about 50 billion bottles. That means some 17 million barrels of oil are used every year to produce those single-use plastic water bottles we use and toss! Even worse, it takes three times the amount of water to produce the bottle than it does to fill the bottle. And worse still, more than 80% of those bottles end up in the landfill, on the side of the road and in our waterways.
We the students of Voice Integrative School would like to ban bottled water form Toronto. Bottled water has a negative impact on our environment and and the water from our taps are cleaner than the water in the plastic bottles. Together we can help save the environment and ourselves.
