When you buy a bottle of water, you’re buying more than a bottle of water

The total amount of energy embedded in our use of bottled water can be as high as the equivalent of filling a plastic bottle one quarter full with oil.

  • It takes 3 litres of water to produce 1 litre of bottled water

  • The production and transportation of bottled water contributes to greenhouse gas emissions

  • Even if the bottle is recycled, more energy is needed to reuse the plastic
