When you buy bottled water, you’re buying it for the water, right?
The real question: Is that what you’re paying for?
Well, let's see...
Single Use Plastics
At $1 a bottle; water costs:
Average Tap Rates:$2/1000 Gallons
$8 Filters clean 40 Gallons of Water/Ea
Moral of the story:
Water goes for $2/1000 Gallons. Think of that every time you pay $1-$2 for a 12oz bottle of water! It’s like paying over $10,000 for a sandwich!
Simple changes to daily habits, such as bringing a reusable bottle with you during your day, will allow you to avoid spending money on water every time you’re thirsty. Think of how much money you’ll save within a year of this!
Math for numbers:
SINGLE USE PLASTIC WATER BOTTLES
Average Water Bottle size: 12oz/16.9oz
Bottles consumed to meet Intake
12oz: 5.33/Day 16.9oz: 3.78/Day
Average 4.55 needed per day
Cost Average $1/Per Bottle
Average cost of Bottled Water $4.55/Day
Average Tap Rates: $2/1000 Gallons
1 Gallon= 128oz
(Daily Recommended Intake) 64oz=.5 Gallon
PURIFIED WATER PITCHER
