Very often, cycling events generate a surprisingly large amount of paper cup waste.

On rides lasting more than an hour, you’re going to need to drink up and quench your thirst. Therefore, plastic water bottles and paper cups are always available at water stations for thirsty participants. The next sight we see, the floor ends up littered with discarded plastic bottles and paper cups.

Despite not drinking up at the water stations, some runners stay hydrated by grabbing energy drinks, at the same time, stashing discarded cups along the route. Not only should you keep hydrated during your rides, but it is also important to grab a bottle before you head out, tackle those miles, in between workouts.

The easiest and cheapest way to do it is by simply mounting a reusable water bottle with you.

Plastic bottles are bad for the environment

Plastic pollutes our landscape and nature in general. When plastic bottles are not disposed of correctly they will certainly end up as litter along the roads and often in the sea and from here plastic can enter the food chain. The stomachs of a variety of animal species that mistake plastics for food. Marine life falls prey to this problem on a daily basis.

Plastic bottles contain Bisphenol A (BPA)

BPA is an endocrine disruptor which has been proven to be hazardous to human health. It has been strongly linked to a host of health problems including certain types of cancer, neurological difficulties, early puberty in girls, premature labor, to more. BPA enters the human body through exposure to plastics such as bottled drinks and cleaning products.

Plastic bottles are not recyclable

Most of the plastic bottles consumed throughout the world that cannot be recycled. The vast majority either ends up lying stagnant in landfills, leaching dangerous chemicals into the ground or sloughing off in the natural environment as litter. The plastic water bottles that get placed in the landfills today, will take up to 1000 years to decompose.

Why should you invest in a reusable bottle?

Reusable bottles are made from BPA-free materials

Disposable plastic water bottles have the potential to leach foul-tasting or even potentially harmful chemicals into the water they hold, especially if exposed to high temperatures for extended periods. This can be responsible for the nasty bottled water taste! In contrast, reusable bottles made from BPA, BPS and BPF free materials. They leave your water just a clean and refreshing as when you pour it in.
