Recycling was a revolutionary idea that has really saved the Earth from dying out much sooner. Water bottles can seem to be a great thing to have when one is thirsty on the go however, it can do massive damage to our environment and when we go through many bottles a day all that damage accumulates massively. I propose an idea where you can have only one reusable water bottle. What makes this different from simply refilling the bottle you might ask?
