Project #39232 - Writing in the Disciplines

The italicized paragraph below includes several quoted items that would be better paraphrased, some quotes that are awkwardly introduced, and some that do not use appropriate MLA-style citations (and some quotes present more than one error to be resolved!). After reviewing  the guidance on what, how, and when to quote from sources in Writing in the Disciplines (pp. 59-67),  rewrite the paragraph in the text box below, paraphrasing what is best paraphrased, and better integrating the materials suitalbe for quoting.

 

It can be argued that the amount of space that bottled water takes up at landfills could be a deciding factor between someone filling a re-usable bottle, and one from a store.  It is well known that Earth’s landfills are filling up quickly and due to this, companies urge recycling to promote their product (Knopper). Knopper writes, “Phillips estimates switching to tap keeps 3,000 plastic water bottles per week out of the landfill”. This amount is momentous and has led to a negative view on bottled water companies. Knopper claims that uprisings  have been occurring more often that include “bottled water-free zones” and speeches about the scam that companies place on the public (Knopper). Another fact stated in Knopper’s article is that “It takes 15 million barrels of oil per year to make all of the plastic water bottles in America, according to the Container Recycling Institute…CRI says eight out of 10 water bottles end up in the landfill. The bottles that drift from landfills and litter streams are washing out to sea to form a huge raft of plastic debris in the center of the Pacific that is twice the size of Texas”
