Reusing Plastic Bottles Can Pose Serious Health Hazards

Reduce, reuse and recycle is the mantra of environmentalists everywhere, but reusing plastic bottles may do more harm than good by releasing toxic chemicals that can cause a host of serious health problems. Learn the dangers of reusing plastic bottles as well as some safe alternatives.

Environment is important because:

It's well being is necessary for the growing of foods. Consider South Africa which is experiencing desertification making it harder for farms to access arable soil and therefore the country can grow less foods. More foods then need to be imported and thus higher expenses.

Population health issues. Dirty air, water, soil etc lead to increased exposure to chronic illnesses, decreases physical development and generally affects the population well being, resulting in higher expenses spent on medical and health concerns. For example Norilsk, Russia where the majority of the population is affected by serious illnesses due to environmental pollution. Imagine the medical bills in that region.

Tourism industry. If your country has one, chances are good that if those places where tourists go and spend money becomes polluted, those tourits won't go as much. A good example is a beach in Spain being contaminated by an oil spill suddenly looses it's annual revenues due to loosing it's tourists.

In your Opinion, Is the environment a good issue to combine with the economy?Where do you see pitfalls and/or pros for covering the environment and the economy with one solution or plan of action for improvement?
