  • 1.5 million tons of plastic used globally each year for water bottles.
  • 1.5 million barrels of oil required per year to make plastic bottles.
  • 1,000 times the price: bottled water costs far more than tap water in many countries, yet may be no safer or healthier.
  • 90% of what consumers pay goes on bottling, shipping, marketing and profit. Not on the water itself.
  • 40% of bottled water begins as tap water.
  • 90% of plastic water bottles end up as garbage.
  • 1,000 years: the time it can take plastic bottles to degrade.
  • 22 million tons of bottled liquid transported each year from their country of origin, ramping up CO2 emissions.
