Are plastic or stainless steel water bottles better for the environment?

    If you only plan on using the stainless steal bottle once in your life, then plastic is better because less energy and resources go onto plastic bottles than steel bottles.  However, chances are you plan on using it many times, so using a stainless steel water bottle is probably better for the environment.  This will save countless amount of plastic, and area in our landfills for the people who forget to recycle.  Using the stainless steal instead of plastic bottles 50 times in your life will beat the climate impact associated with water bottles, and using it 500 times will beat the plastic bottles in every single environmentally impacted category.
