World wide it takes about 72 billion gallons of water each year to make the bottles alone. This massive waste only expands as only twenty percent of the bottles end up being recycled. Those that are not recycled could end up in landfills, in the park, or on the side of the highway, where it could take a thousand years or more to degrade. (RD) However there are healthy, eco-friendly, and affordable ways to carry around tap water. Aluminum bottles are built to be carried in cars, in bags, and on your belt loop.

In 2013, Americans generated about 254 million tons of trash and recycled and composted 87 million tons of this material, equivalent to a 34.3 percent recycling rate. On average, we recycled and composted 1.51 pounds of our individual waste generation of 4.40 pounds per person per day ( Enviromental Benefits of Recycling, Waste Generation Increases, Stanford University). Second evidence is creating jobs. In 2011, it was approximate that over 2.3 million people worked in and around the recycling business (4 Advantages of Recycling That Benefit the Economy and Environment, Udemy Blog, 23 MAY 2014). Helps create new good-paying jobs in the recycling and manufacturing industries in the United States.
What could the United States do with an extra 7.7 billion dollars? What could the state of Michigan do with 5.3 billion dollars? How could the nation get this much money in one year? The legalization of marijuana would bring such revenue. Replacing “marijuana prohibition with a system of legal regulation would save approximately $7.7 billion in government expenditures on prohibition enforcement -- $2.4 billion at the federal level and $5.3 billion at the state and local levels” (Miron, “Budgetary Implications of Marijuana Prohibitions in the United States).

Water bottle manufacturers have spent millions on getting Americans to spend their hard earned money on water in bottles.
Conservation helps keep unneeded waste out of landfills in the United States (Conserve Energy Future 2). As Americans, an average person throws away 4.8 pounds of waste daily. This adds up to over 1750 pounds in a year alone, for one person. In 2006, Americans generated 251 tons of waste (Riedel 11). Of this waste over 50 percent could be recycled into new materials to be used again.
It used ethics in the commercial and it used credibility. By for example the main character in the commercial, the construction worker portrayed a very sweaty, thirsty, and tired character. This technique was an incredibly dramatic one as it was used in order to reach out to the audience and make the ad more realistic and reliable. Diet coke truly does give refreshment, with its cold fizzy solution, many construction workers and others drink it to quench their thirst and to get a boost with it containing a 34 mg dose of caffeine in every can. The commercial was also created with an emotional appeal of its pathos.
Burn, a tangy citrus-flavored beverage created in 2002, packs a walloping 118 milligrams of caffeine in each 8.3-ounce blazing yellow can 48 percent more than industry leader Red Bull. But the creator of this human rocket fuel isn't what you expect. Benedict exudes an aura of calm and tranquility more typical of a yoga guru than the extreme athletes who down his product. The University of Florida journalism graduate doesn't fit the mold of success in the billion-dollar energy drink busi-ness an industry where nearly 1,000 new drinks have been released in the past four years.
