The Environmental and Financial Cost of Bottled Water vs. Eco-friendly Water Treatment

Bottled water, an ever-present commodity in our daily lives, might be convenient but its environmental impact is severe. The natural resource impact of bottled water is a staggering 3,500 times higher than tap water. Furthermore, producing bottles for water in the U.S. alone consumes 17 million barrels of oil every year. Such facts highlight the urgent need for sustainable alternatives. Fortunately, reducing the environmental impact of drinking bottled water is easier than you might think.

Benefits of Shifting from Bottled to Tap Water

Switching from bottled water to tap water not only protects our environment by cutting down on plastic waste, but it also conserves other precious resources used in the production, packaging, and transportation of bottled water. Imagine the significant reduction in plastics and other resources if more people favored tap water over bottled.
