Please reuse your plastic bottles and containers and also recycle drink containers

You remember those times when you order in food and it comes in plastic tubs-esp the miso soup and what not.
Or prolly the time when you buy energy drink(not that i suggest that you buy energy drinks-coz i think the concept of energy drinks itself is very gimmicky) , but yeah, remember the thick tough plastic bottle that the drink comes in?
I think that it would be very wise firstly to choose drinks that come in biodegradable tetrapaper packs rather than those that come in plastic bottles.. Yeah,the drinks that come in glass or metal cans are okay too, coz most of these cans and glass bottles are recyclable too..but the plan works only if you care to segregate your garbage and then go and drop off your empty tins at the recycle place.
Meanwhile, reusing plastic bottles is a great way of recycling.These boxes and bottles are tough and last a long time , if you refill these bottles with water and take them along when you go out everyday.That lil bit of trouble of taking tap water in your plastic bottle would ensure that you don't end up buying a new waterbottle while you are out.
I do this a lot.. Ofcourse, i boil my tapwater coz i am quite suspicious of it now(time to get it analyzed) and then cool it and then fill up my empty plastic bottles and then when i go out to work the next day, I take 2 bottles with me.
The aim is to drink up the two bottles by the time i am back home.This not only makes sure that i drink adequate water while i am out and thus am adequately hydrated, it also ensures that i don't buy additional bottles of plastic and thus increase the garbage burden on the environment.
Try these tips and tell me what you think.
