Earth911 survey results

Thanks to those of you who responded to last week’s survey, Your Single-Use Plastic Water Bottle Purchases.

Here’s how Earthlings responded to the question, “How many single-use plastic water bottles do you estimate you’ve purchased this year?”:

  • Zero, I avoid them at all costs: 23 percent
  • 1 to 10, only in extreme circumstances: 49 percent
  • 10 to 50, I’ve got work to do: 11 percent
  • 50 to 100, I’ve got a plastic bottle problem: 6 percent
  • 100 or more, and I know I am part of the problem: 11 percent

Be sure to respond to this week’s survey, Have You Helped a Neighbor Recycle Better? We’ll report the results next week and will post another question.
