Carry a water bottle with you and drink water from the tap.
When buying packaged beverages, aluminum cans are a better option than plastic bottles as old cans can be made into new ones.


Refill and reuse glass and plastic bottles before recycling them. Old cans or juice boxes are great for children’s art projects.
