2. Bottled Water
First of all, water from a municipal source in bottled water can truly be a pretty mountain stream on the label.
But the bottle itself is the most damaging component of bottled water. Not only is wasted plastic bad for the environment. But it also leaches dangerous chemicals into whatever it comes into contact with.
Bisphenol-A, or BPA, is a well-known example. Despite the fact that it is a recognized hormone disruptor that raises the risk of prostate and breast cancer as well as metabolic problems.
This chemical is found in many plastic water bottles.
