Two Of A Kind #2

Two reusable plastic water bottles. There’s something about the colours or colour combination that keeps me coming back to this photo.

This is my day 15 contribution to Becky’s October Squares challenge on the theme of Kind.

Colourful plastic Tops

This is my day 28 contribution to Becky’s April Square Tops photo challenge.

These are two of our reusable plastic water bottles, we’ve been using them for years.

One Word Sunday

Plastic

I had checked this prompt and had a photo planned for the One Word Sunday: Plastic challenge. I was going to photograph the small spirit (bubble) level I have been carrying in various camera bags for decades and using to level cameras on tripods.

I hadn’t even got the level out of the bag when I noticed the colour of the blue water bottle sitting on the table. I knew there was a second, purple, water bottle in the fridge so decided to change my plan for the challenge. As it turned out, this image ties in with Debbie’s One Word Sunday photo.

The reason for my change of direction was to make a point. These two water bottles have each been refilled hundreds of times. We never buy bottled water even though there seems to be a good recycling system in place in this part of Ontario.

That’s because I read that while one of the producers of bottled water was claiming that 70-75% of plastic water bottles are recycled in Ontario a non-profit organization that challenges corporate and government claims estimates only 14% are recycled. Another group estimate 1 billion plastic bottles end up in Ontario landfills each year.
