Landfills. They're Full Of It
Bottled Versus Tap; You Have CHOICES.
The fact is that most of us grew up drinking the water that came straight out of our faucets and never gave it a second thought. But times have changed. Today, more than half of all Americans drink bottled water; about a third of the public consumes it regularly. People spend from 240 to over 10,000 times more per gallon for bottled water than they typically do for tap water.
Is Bottled Water Better?
Numerous consumer studies have shown that we buy bottled water for its taste and convenience. But if you consider the lasting effects of this convenient alternative to tap water, you might rethink your choice. According to a 2006 study by the Pacific Institute, producing the water bottles for American consumption required the equivalent of more than 17 million barrels of oil, not including the energy required for transportation. Bottling water produced more than 2.5 million tons of carbon dioxide. It took 3 liters of water to produce 1 liter of bottled water. Americans recycled a paltry 23% of their water bottles last year, sending 38,000,000,000 (thirty eight billion) to landfills across the country. And the fact is, bottled water isn't even fresh, sitting on store shelves for weeks or months before being consumed.
Better Water Doesn't Have To Come At The Expense Of The Environment.
