(1) More than 1 billion water bottles are winding up in the trash in California alone each year, according to a report released May 29, 2003 by the California Department of Conservation. That translates into nearly 3 million empty water bottles going to the trash every day. Plastic water bags, a popular method for providing inexpensive water by substituting cheap bags for bottles, are so much strewn in the streets of countries like Haiti and Ecuador, that those governments are seeking legislation to stop the sales for these products. A rapidly growing water contaminate and environmental concern is "xenobiotics, xenoestrogens" [ from Greek 'xenos' meaning strange, foreign. Xenobiotics are synthetic products not formed by natural biosynthetic processes; a foreign substance or poison ] as a result of the destruction of plastics. All this non biodegradable plastic is going to the landfill and incineration. Landfills generate heat from composting. Offgassing from landfills and incinerators place xenos into the air. Rain absorbs and brings into our soil, streams. The production of many novel xenobiotics has introduced into the environment many compounds that microorganisms normally do not encounter and are therefore not prepared to biodegrade (hence the fear of voluminous empties). Many of these compounds are toxic to living systems, and their presence in aquatic and terrestrial habitats often has serious ecological consequences, including major kills of indigenous biota (that's plants, you and me!).
