  15. 15.    Turn the bottle or the container upside down. You may have to strain your eyes, use magnifying glass or our favourite age old technique of using paper and pencil. You will find a number on all plastic items and if you don’t – DON’T EVEN BOTHER TO USE IT. Tanay Agrawal, Arya Vidya Mandir , Juhu, Mumbai 15
  16. 16.    1. ONLY ONE MOTHER EARTH, WE DON’T WANT’ WALL e ‘ MOVIE TURNING INTO REALITY. More usage means more waste and pollution. 2. YOUR HEALTH…PLASTICS MEANS DAMAGE TO YOUR BODY TOO Tanay Agrawal, Arya Vidya Mandir , Juhu, Mumbai 16
  17. 17.   In the U.S., 1,500 plastic water bottles are consumedevery second. Here’s why that’s a major problem for humans, the environment, and the animals on our planet. Plastic bottles contain Bisphenol A (BPA), the chemical used to make the plastic hard and clear. BPA is an endocrine disruptor which has been proven to be hazardous to human health. It has been strongly linked to a host of health problems including certain types of cancer, neurological difficulties, early puberty in girls, reduced fertility in women, premature labour, and defects in newborn babies – to name a few examples. Tanay Agrawal, Arya Vidya Mandir , Juhu, Mumbai 17
  18. 18.   In addition to the negative impacts of BPA and phthalates on human health there are also growing concerns regarding carcinogens and microbial contaminants that have been found in test samples of bottled water. Plastic bottle tops are currently not recyclable, and as with plastic bags they often end up at the bottom of the ocean, and in the stomachs of a variety of animal species that mistake them for food. One albatross that was recently found dead on a Hawaiian island had a stomach full of 119 bottle caps. Tanay Agrawal, Arya Vidya Mandir , Juhu, Mumbai 18
  19. 19.   t’s harder to recycle plastic bottles than you think. Of the mass numbers of plastic bottles consumed throughout the world, most of them are not recycled because only certain types of plastic bottles can be recycled by certain municipalities. They either end up lying stagnant in landfills, leaching dangerous chemicals into the ground, or they infiltrate our streets as litter. They are found on sidewalks, in parks, front yards and rivers, and even if you chop them into tiny pieces they still take more than a human lifetime to decompose. It gets worse. In the case of bottled water, the plastic-making process requires over two gallons of water for the purification process of every gallon of water. Tanay Agrawal, Arya Vidya Mandir , Juhu, Mumbai 19
  20. 20.      Reduce- Avoid buying bottled water. We can carry our own bottles. Its easy. Ask your parents and grandparents. They used to carry the water from home in the containers of metal. Now shatter proof glass bottles are available too. We can use plastic(lets give it the credit it deserves)it is convenient but carry our own bottles with magic numbers of 1,2,4,6 only. Tanay Agrawal, Arya Vidya Mandir , Juhu, Mumbai 20
  21. 21.   For this concern I have started this campaign so that we use less plastic bottles. Visit me on my web page Tanay Agrawal, Arya Vidya Mandir , Juhu, Mumbai 21
