for my intro i got a 'Water is the elixir of life'and i got lota of negative impact are trasportation, production is the reliance on fossil fuels,Raw plastic must be heated before it can be injected into bottle-shaped blow molds, and this heat source is often electricity or natural gas, both of which are produced by fossil fuels. The finished bottles must then be shipped out by trucks or trains, which also burn natural fossil fuels. Add to this the use of additional packaging materials such as plastic wrap and cardboard. Merely producing the bottles has a negative impact on the environment.
An excess of energy and resources are used in the process of manufacturing and transporting the bottles, and even worse is its generation of solid waste- the used plastic bottles.

    "Water is the elixir of life." But commercially bottled water has a lot of negative impact on the environment. Its transportation and production relies on fossil fuels. Raw plastic must be heated before it can be injected into bottle-shaped blow molds. This heat source is often electricity or natural gas, both of which are produced by fossil fuels. The finished bottles must then be shipped out by trucks or trains, which also burn natural fossil fuels. Add to this the use of additional packaging materials such as plastic wrap and cardboard. Merely producing the bottles has a negative impact on the environment. An excess of energy and resources is used in the process of manufacturing and transporting the bottles. Even worse is its generation of solid waste- the used plastic bottles.
