The truth about bottled water
Here are the facts
The health arguments for bottled water as a healthy alternative are overstated. Bottled water companies market their brand of water as “pure, spring water” or “natural pure, mountain water,” however such water is often little more than reconstituted tap water, or filtered bore water – and that’s a fact!
This water may taste slightly better than tap water, but it hardly warrants the almost 1,000% price mark-up. And consider the climate impact. Looking for bottled water alternatives helps save costs as well as this precious natural resource.
Globally, the production and transportation energy requirement of the bottled water industry is 170 million barrels of oil, enough to power 10 million cars for an entire year. Visualise the energy embodied in bottled water by filling one quarter of a 1L bottle with oil.

Some shocking facts about bottled water
Every piece of plastic ever produced remains in our world polluting the planet
Australians buy 118,000 tonnes of plastic drink bottles per year.
Only 355 is recycled. The 76,700 tonnes left behind either goes in landfill taking up to 1000 years to break down, or ends up in our environment as rubbish.
– A British study has found that drinking a bottle of water has the same impact on the environment as driving a car 1km.

Unfortunately it’s true
and the problem is getting worse
Australia uses more than 300,000 barrels of oil a year to make PET bottles for bottled water. It can take up to 3L of water to produce 1L of bottled water.
Our water coolers, dispensers, and filtration systems are the best alternatives to bottled water. Save the environment AND save money with Smarter Water.
