Hydrasip News & Events

Did You Know?

The average plastic bottle of water costs $1.50! That is nearly 2000 times the price of tap water!

This spells Bad News for your…

  • Wallet: an average U.S. citizen spends over $400 annually on plastic bottled water
  • Health: can be damaged by toxic chemicals like Bisphenol-A (BPA) leached from bottled water.
  • Environment: which is tainted by the product’s Transportation, Packaging & Disposal.

In the year 2004, just 5 years ago, plastic bottled water usage was 26,000,000,000 litres. (Yes – BILLIONS!)

This is nearly 28,000,000,000 plastic bottles per year of which 86% end up as garbage! 1,500 plastic water bottles end up as garbage every SECOND! 

26 Billion litres means: 

  • 17,000,000 barrels of oil used to product the plastic bottles
  • That is enough fuel to power 100,000 cars!
  • An additional 2,500,000 tons of carbon dioxide that was produced in the manufacture of the plastic bottles
  • $100,000,000,000 (Yes, that is billions!) is spent every year by consumers on bottled water.

Do you keep your bottled water in your car? Convenient huh? 

But…did you know…

  • The heat in the car and plastic of the bottle can leach out chemicals that can lead to breast & other types of cancer?
