We at Project 96 are proud to launch our first ever project – Project 96 Stainless Steel Water Bottles / Travel Coffee Mugs.
Why did we decide to launch stainless steel bottles as our first project
With so many problems ailing the world today, and so many projects we want to take on, we decided that our first project will focus on a global problem – plastic pollution.
Did you know that almost 90% of wastes floating in our ocean is made out of plastic? And the number of plastic wastes floating around our oceans now outnumber sea life by 6 to 1. That is just insane!
If we continue to stay as a plastic society, using plastic bags, plastic water bottles, plastic straws and utensils – pretty soon, we’ll be drowning in plastic.
When you think recycling does the job; well, that’s absolutely false. That’s because plastic never goes away. Plastic is a substance that the world just can’t digest, every bit of it produced since the beginning of time still exists today.
Our solution, our contribution, is promoting reusable containers that don’t end up in landfills, water systems – end eventually our oceans.
How does plastic affect you and your body?
Plastic chemicals, such as BPA, are absorbed by the body. Studies show that these chemicals alter your hormones and disrupt the endocrine system. So what does that even mean? Well, it means it can increase your risk of getting a heart disease, breast, brain and prostate cancer, infertility, and obesity (among many other things).
