'Plastic Soup': the gigantic concentrations of toxic plastic in the oceans. What can you do to stop this massive, global ecological problem? Stop using plastic water bottles.
Express your respect for your fellow human beings and for the environment with the Eco Respekt Bottle
This bottle was designed with a keen eye for detail. The spiral around the neck of the battle symobilses the vitality of water. The mandala on the bottom represents geometry, which is a branch of mathematics devoted to 'measuring the earth'. Lastly, the Amanprana elephant represents a 'serene life force' - a gentle, spirited vegetarian, an animal that only takes what it needs. With this bottle, Amanprana's goal is to create awareness and to 'save the sea' one bottle at a time.
Is our comfort society aware that the environment, air, sea, fish, seabirds and anmials are being poisoned by plastics at an alarmingly increasing speed?
Not only does plastic, which is quite often simply dumped in the ocean, poison our water, it also poisons all the ecological systems within that water. The fish are poisoned by this water. Moreover, penguins, whales and many other animals may drown or die from injury after being trapped in plastic that is floating around in the water.
We harm ourselves by allowing this excessive use of plastic to occur. We harm many eco-systems and thereby our food and sustenance. And what about tomorrow's generation? How will they survive with limited resources and a lack of clean water. On average, each year, people in Europe use fifty billion disposable bottles. This is more than 100 plastic bottles per person per year!
Plastic is chemical, contains softeners, monomers and is not bio-degradable. It stinks, migrates into your drinks (especially during hot weather or in hot drinks) and increases the visiable mountain of waste. The product of plastics produces 5 times more greenhouse gas emissions than gas bottles do.
Fifty per cent of plastic bottles are recycled - pretty good, most would say, but they would be wrong. First of all, a recycled bottle will never become a bottle again. And every time plastic is recycled, it loses some value. Eventually, plastic is either tipped or burned. Half of the recycled plastic bottles are burned, and pollute the air that we breathe.
Whatever what people may say, plastic is also not suitable for food. Much like when you drink from a plastic contain, small particles enter the body. They can be responsible for hormone balance and those of a (possible) foetus. Additionally it increases the chance of cancer. Moreover, plastic bottles and drinking containers are never cleaned completely and therefore are in risk of becoming moldy and full of microbes.
