According to waterdocs.ca, a million plastic bottles are bought around the world every minute. That number is projected to rise by 20% over the next couple of years.
As few as 50% of plastic bottles used in Toronto alone make it into our blue bins.
The other half? Their fate rests in our local landfills, rivers and parks, where they take at least 450 years to decompose. Some estimates pegs that figure at 1,000 years.
That. Is. Shocking.
We can do our part by simply not using plastic bottles.
Our new 500 mL sleeved Mantra Glass Bottle will keep you as hydrated as a plastic bottle. It fits in the palm of your hand and is snug as a bug in your bike or vehicle cup holder.
Give yourself the gift of peace of mind. With your year end financial contribution of $100 or more (or a monthly gift of $10), we’ll send you your own GPO Mantra Glass Bottle.
