Team up with Tri-California to minimize the impact on our environment! Americans send about 38 billion water bottles a year to landfills. Considering the 1.5 million barrels of oil needed to make those bottles, as well as the amount of space that they take up in the landfills, the environmental impact of plastic bottle waste is truly staggering. Plastics (polycarbonate) have been shown to leach carcinogens including BPA during regular use, exposure to heat and especially after cleaning. From manufacturing, to use and disposal, plastics have the potential to pollute our health and environment. Purchasing and using a reusable water bottle is an easy change that can make a big difference to our global environment.
You have probably heard the saying "Reduce, Reuse, Recycle". This is a fairly common phrase you will see at most recycling centers, waste management facilities, and on recycling containers nation wide to promote environmentally-friendly methods of reducing waste. What you may not know is that these three R's are listed in chronological order. Though we've all become quite conditioned to recycling as a great way to reduce waste and help the environment, reusing products and materials, and reducing our consumption in the first place have a much more positive impact on the environment.
How it works: Purchase your Eco-Friendly Sports Bottles online and stop by the Expo booth at the event to pick up your bottle for use all weekend and for years to come.
The Cause: For each bottle purchased you help us get closer to saving our environment by saving on plastic bottles and cups. Reusable bottles helps replace wasteful, use-and-toss single serving plastic beverage containers, while saving you money in the process. More
