Every once in a while there is a report on the news about leaving your plastic water bottles in the car and how dangerous it is. The problem with that statement, is that the damage has already been done.

Water is packaged into plastic bottles at many different locations around the world, from that point the water bottles are put into shipping containers, whether it be on a ship, train, or truck.

None of these shipping containers are refrigerated.

So in the few days to months it takes to get from source to warehouse and from warehouse to your store, that plastic water bottle has been sitting in the sun baking.

Dangers of Plastic Water Bottle

When you go to the store and buy a ice cold water bottle, that is the end of the line for that product. It has already been heated in a shipping container, for days on end.

The chemicals have already leached into your water.

Leaving your plastic water bottle in the car for a day isn’t going to matter at all. You’re already getting those chemicals, they’ve already been sitting in the heat.

Glass water bottles are the only safe water bottles to buy.

Here at the Matlacha Wellness Center, we only have Mountain Valley Spring water, stored in glass water bottles, and our water cooler is the same bank, a glass 5 gallon water bottle filled with Valley Spring water.

There are a few other brands that use glass water bottles, I highly recommend you choose one of those.

There is no need or you to add additional toxins into your body by buying plastic water bottles. Not only are they bad for the environment, they are killing you.
