Staying hydrated is essential for our health and well being. Drinking water helps maintain the balance of our body fluids and helps with transporting nutrients, oxygen, messages and waste. Water also has a vital role in cleaning, reacting, padding, regulating our body temperature and dissolving stuff.
Incredibly, hydration is the third biggest industry in the world. Electricity and oil take the top spots.
American consumers spend on average 8 billion dollars every year on bottled water. And globally we swig back around 1 million bottles per minute.
The reasoning behind the bottle water phenomena is understandable.
- Bottled water is convenient
- It often tastes better than tap water
- People believe in the quality of bottled water
- There is a great choice of flavours available
As consumers though we are paying a hefty price. Bottle water costs up to 1,000 times more than tap water. 1 litre of bottled water takes a staggering 3 litres of water to produce.
As humanity, the cost is even higher. Every bottle takes around 1000 years to decompose with 80 percent ending up in landfill.
