Over 60,000,000 plastic bottles a day are disposed of in U.S. landfills from bottled water use. Other than the direct impact of 30 billion plastic bottles a year being disposed of in U.S. landfills alone, bottled water negatively impacts our environment in many other ways. 17 billion barrels of oil are used each year to produce the 30 billion plastic bottles, producing some 2.5 billion tons of carbon dioxide pollution. It takes three times the amount of water to produce the bottle as it does to fill it. Not to mention the pollution from transporting heavy loads of bottled water all over the World!

Then your just filling the dump with a recyclable item
Hydrogen Peroxide is used to sterilize plastic bottles before they are filled because it kills any germs and will not damage the bottle. If other chemicals were used, it could damage the plastic or stay in the plastic and get into the liquid that is being put in the bottles.
