Out of 1 million water bottles purchased every minute globally, we're apparently drinking plastic according to 93% of those tested in a recent study by Orb Media.  

For more information:

Sadly, we're also only recycling fewer than 50% of plastic bottles.  

According to an article posted by BBC on March 15th, "Research led by journalism organisation Orb Media discovered an average of 10 plastic particles per litre, each larger than the width of a human hair." 

Health effects of this ingestion are currently not clear, but the tests show reason for concern and further investigation.
