Plastic Bottle v Copper Bottle
Plastic bottles and copper bottles are both commonly used to store and transport liquids, but they have some key differences in terms of their properties and environmental impact.
Durability: Plastic bottles are lightweight and relatively inexpensive to produce, but they are not as durable as copper bottles. Plastic bottles can become brittle over time and can be easily punctured or damaged, whereas copper bottles are much more durable and can last for years with proper care.
Safety: Plastic bottles can release chemicals known as plasticizers, which can contaminate the liquids stored inside. Copper bottles, on the other hand, are safe to use and do not release any harmful chemicals.
Environmental impact: Plastic bottles are a significant environmental concern because they are not biodegradable and can take hundreds of years to decompose. Plastic bottles also contribute to the problem of plastic pollution, as they often end up in landfills or the ocean. Copper bottles, on the other hand, are recyclable and can be used for many years before they need to be replaced.
Temperature: Copper bottles are good at keeping the temperature of stored liquids for a longer time, whether it is hot or cold.
Health benefits: Copper bottles have the added benefit of providing trace amounts of copper to the water stored in them, which can provide some health benefits such as anti-inflammatory properties, and natural antimicrobial agent.

In summary, Plastic bottles are lightweight and relatively inexpensive to produce, but they are not as durable as copper bottles, can release chemicals known as plasticizers and they are a significant environmental concern. Copper Bottles, on the other hand, are safe to use, durable, recyclable, good at keeping the temperature of stored liquids for a longer time, and can provide some health benefits. However, copper bottles must be handled with care and cleaned regularly to prevent tarnishing and copper exposure is not recommended for some group of people.
