In the US, about 50 billion water bottles are purchased every year, averaging about 13 bottles per month for every person in the country! It takes 17 million barrels of crude oil each year to produce plastic bottles to meet America’s annual demand for bottled water – translating into enough fuel to run over 40,000 cars for a year.
Plastic used in bottled water is a single-use plastic and are not usually recycled. According to the Container Recycling Institute, 86 percent of plastic water bottles used in the United States become garbage or litter. Rest is dumped in the ocean.
Did you know that over 40% of bottled water is merely tap water filtered by reverse osmosis systems? That means by using a reusable water bottle, you could save an average of 156 plastic bottles annually.
