Put Down the (Water) Bottle: Use Tap Water InsteadBottled water is a big business, but it can be costly and inefficient. Discover the benefits of using tap water instead!
Tap into Savings.
Compared to tap water, bottled water is extremely expensive — and it's likely no safer or cleaner, experts say. At an average cost of $1.22 per gallon, you’ll spend 300 times the cost of tap water to drink bottled water. When you consider the fact that the vast majority of all bottled water sales are single, 16.9oz bottles, the cost is likely much higher.
Filter to your Taste.
Water taste varies across the country. Treating your water at home with a filtration or purification system is a good way to get great-tasting water without buying bottled. Whether it’s a whole house, point-of-use, countertop or faucet mount, running your water through a filter can upgrade the flavor of your home’s water to premium quality.
Protect the Environment.
There’s no doubt that bottled water is convenient, but wasteful. While most bottled water comes in recyclable PET plastic bottles, only about 13 percent of those bottles get recycled. Banning the bottle means you won’t be contributing to 2 million tons of discarded water bottles in U.S. landfills.
