Health News Products The Future of Fish in the sea depends on your Water Cooler. January 30, 2019 Marine life is greatly affected by a surplus of un-recycled and dumped plastic bottles. Have a read about how you can effect change for the better by equipping yourself with a water cooler. FLAKES IN LAKES Frighteningly, there is an increasing amount of microplastics being found in our municipal water and ocean supply. Here’s how it happens: People are not recycling their PET plastic bottles as much as they can. PET plastic bottles are unable to biodegrade. Over time, they break down into smaller and smaller flakes. These flakes make their way into lakes, rivers and, ultimately, our oceans. Two things then happens: Fish and aquatic life mistake these flakes for food and eat them. The water flows into our municipal supply and we drink it. So, what action can you take to counter this? You can begin by throwing away less and re-using more. One terrific way that you can combat the use of disposable bottles, is by investing in a re-usable container, or tapping a water purification system into your work or home space.
