Why Bottled Water Is Killing The Planet

It has taken a while but many businesses are now realising that there is an alternative to buying in bottled water for their own premises.


The crazy situation of water being transported half way around the world is becoming a thing of the past. Many are opting for an onsite environmentally friendly filtration system that provides pure chilled, still and sparkling water and teams up with reusable glass bottles.

The facts that surround the impact of bottled water on the environment makes for scary reading – even for someone with the slightest green conscience.

  • There is a floating garbage patch in the North Pacific – which is estimated to be six times the size of England that contains millions of tonnes of rubbish – mostly plastic.
  • In the UK alone the manufacturing of plastic consumes 580,000 tonnes of fossil fuels each year – the same weight at 1,896 Boeing 747’s.
  • Only one in seven plastic bottles is recycled.
  • It is estimated that 3 litres of water are used to package every litre bottle of water.
  • Seventeen million barrels of oil are used every year in the production of plastic bottles – in the US alone.

    With those facts in mind it is important that we all play a part in helping reduce the damage to our environment.
