3 Ways to Kick Your Plastic Habit This Summer

Choose glass water filter pitchers over single-use plastic.

(StatePoint) Summer is the perfect time of year to take stock of the way you quench your thirst, whether in the backyard, at the beach, around the campfire or in route to your next adventure.

Unfortunately, society has become addicted to the convenience of plastic, especially when it comes to the way we hydrate. Globally, 1 million single-use plastic water bottles are purchased per minute, and on average, Americans purchase 50 billion water bottles per year, equating to about 13 bottles per month for every U.S. citizen.
