August's Green Team Tip of the Month encourages you to have a reusable water bottle and coffee mug with you during your daily life and travels. This reduces your personal environmental impact and helps prevent single-use waste from entering our landfills. Some studies estimate that 50 billion water bottles are sold in the U.S. each year and only 23 percent are recycled. An article from TreeTribe.com reports that this produces more than $1 billion in wasted plastic each year, which is the equivalent to 192 million gallons of oil. And any plastic water bottle that ends up in a landfill is estimated to take up to 1,000 years to decompose. Many Mountain Village merchants sell glass or insulated reusable water bottles. To take the tip one step further, you can also purchase reusable utensils and straws to reduce your environmental impact.
