BOT­TLING IT UP

Good Health Choices - - Health Bites -

Ki­wis are be­com­ing more eco-con­scious, espe­cially when it comes to sin­gle-use plas­tic bot­tles. A na­tion­wide sur­vey by So­daStream found 64 per cent of New Zealan­ders feel guilty about the plas­tic bot­tles they buy and the ef­fect it’s hav­ing on the en­vi­ron­ment. While one in five Ki­wis buy bot­tled wa­ter at least weekly, 87 per cent say they’d be will­ing to give up buy­ing plas­tic bot­tles en­tirely to pro­tect our oceans. And three-quar­ters of those sur­veyed say if bot­tled wa­ter be­came less so­cially ac­cept­able, sim­i­lar to smok­ing, they’d think twice about buy­ing it.
