"The rationale for buying bottled water is a fantasy that has a destructive downside. These companies are marketing an illusion of environmental purity." National Resources Defense Council (NRDC) spokesperson in the New York Times.
"It's ironic that on some of the labels of the bottles, you see snow-capped mountains and glaciers when in fact the production of the bottle is contributing to global warming, which is melting those snowcaps and those glaciers." (NRDC spokesperson in the Washington Post)
The Reality of Bottled Water:
Only 1 in 5 bottles are recycled, the other 4 help create 3 billion pounds of waste each year
It takes 3 times the amount of water to produce a disposable bottle as it does to fill it
25% of well known bottled water brands contain chemicals at levels above state health limits
Over 20 million barrels of oil are used in the manufacturing and shipping of plastic water bottles each year
An ever growing number of consumers are paying attention to these types of issues and are modifying their purchasing behaviors accordingly, opting for alternatives to bottled water.
