Environmentally Friendly  Investments

Reviewing spending habits can be a depressing and shocking event for millennials. We are notoriously not good with our money. With increasing prices on almost everything and high paying jobs seeming to be a fairy tale, it is more important than ever to increase the bang for your buck.

 Often times environmentally friendly options are associated with more expensive. Some examples are electric cars, solar panels, dissolvable plastic bags, and fresh foods. But one investment that yields an incredibly high ROI (return on investment) is a water bottle. The average cost to drink bottled water per year is $1400.00 and that’s just water. What if you include bottles of orange juice, apple juice, sports drinks etc. This is a heavy hit when tap water for the year would only cost an estimated $0.50/yr.

Water bottles are one of the best return on investments we can buy and they help keep millions of disposable plastic bottles out of landfills. Buying something like a $29.99 Pressa Bottle shown below allows you to replace your juice bottles and your disposable water bottles for years to come. Imagine the savings!
