Tracking a Bottle
A Local's Perspective
National Geographic photographer Pete McBride is on a mission. Millions of plastic water bottles and trash end up in rivers and other bodies of water. Join Pete on his next adventure to the Rio Grande River in Texas to see how breaking our reliance on bottled water can have a positive environmental impact.
More and more people are seeing the effects of plastic waste and working to be part of change for the better. And breaking your bottled water habit is one of the easiest steps you can take. Because with Brita, you get great-tasting filtered water, without all the waste of bottles.
Only 9% of plastic waste is recycled. 2,000 plastic bottles are used every second.
It's estimated that, by weight, there could be more plastic than fish in the ocean by 2050, if recent trends continue.**
In one year you can save 1,800 disposable bottles from landfills and oceans with just 2 Brita Longlast filters.
See where you can purchase a BRITA filter or BRITA water bottle to help further your pledge.
