Custom water bottles are the perfect promotional giveaway items for your company. By giving away reusable water containers you are making a statement about sustainability and consumer responsibility by promoting an environmentally friendly alternative to buying prepackaged bottled water. Customized containers that hold water which comes in bottles made out of polyethylene terephthalate, high density polyethylene plastic, and polycarbonate plastic. The consumption of water around the world doubled between the years 1997 to 2005, leaving billions of empty bottles to be thrown away. By reusing your custom bottles, your clients will be lessening their impact on landfills across the country while promoting your business.

In addition to cutting down on wasted polyethylene terephthalate or PET bottles, your customers will be able to avoid the effects of drinking purified water which contains no fluoride, leading to tooth decay over time. Reusing PET bottles themselves has been found here to be harmful as well, leading to the rapid growth of bacteria in the bottles and the breakdown of the plastic particles. Studies have shown that drinking mineral water over time can lead to hypercalcemia due to the high levels of calcium present in the water. Hypercalcemia can increase the risk of developing kidney stones or gall stones.

Additional studies have shown containers that hold water to contain harmful chemical contaminants at levels exceeding state health limits. These chemical contaminants could potentially develop into health risks if consumed over long periods of time. Other studies have proven that a considerable percentage of bottled water packaged in plastic containers contains a considerable amount of estrogenic chemicals. Some estrogenic chemicals have been found in water packaged in glass bottles. However it is widely believed that the contamination is caused by plastic containers.

Consuming water stored in containers can not only be detrimental to your health, but it is also a strain on most budgets. Bottled water can be hundreds and even thousands of times more expensive per unit than drinking tap water instead. Approximately 90% of bottled water manufacturer’s expenses are from fabricating the bottle, label, and bottle cap. Campaigns started against bottled water emphasise the health risks and environmental impact of drinking containers with water on a regular basis. Several religious organizations in North America have discussed whether or not the resale of a basic resource is an ethical or unethical practice.
