Yearly Plastic Bottle Waste in the USA (it’s a lot)

We all know plastic water bottles are a problem.  They take a lot of water and oil to produce.  They end up in landfills, on the side of the road, and the oceans.  It’s even more expensive to drink bottled water over tap water.  Yet, water bottle sales still increase every single year.

It’s estimated that 60,000,000 plastic bottles are thrown away every day in the US.  Now, numbers aren’t the most interesting thing to me since I’m a visual learner, so I put this problem into something that’s easy to share and understand.
