Making your own carbonated beverages will save untold amounts of plastic, is cheaper, and will also enable you to make healthier drinks.

SodaStream makes small home carbonation appliances. Buy it once, and when your carbon dioxide canister runs out, you can switch it for a full one at many locations. Other companies make similar products as well.

If you’re feeling more adventurous, make your own. See tutorials from Popular Science and Instructables.

This applies to Disposable plastic beverage bottles.
