A World of reasons to ditch Bottled Water.

In reality tap water has far higher and more stringent quality standards than bottled water, it also costs far less in some instances bottled water can cost 10,000 times more per gallon than tap water. In 2004 USA consumed more than 22 gallons per person, an unsustainable industry for the environment. “Approximately 1.5 million barrels of oil enough to run 100,000 cars for a whole year are used to make plastic water bottles, while transporting these bottles burns even more oil.”

Mass volumes of water are wasted with its purification process, ‘two gallons of water are wasted in the purification process for every gallon that goes into the bottles.” Along with the decline of water tables as high volumes of water are being removed.

Nearly 90 percent of water bottles are not recycled and wind up in landfills where it takes thousands of years for the plastic to decompose.
