To Bottle or Not to Bottle?
by Bob Erbacher, Sales Manager
So, you just bought a nice crystal-clear bottle of spring water and you’re about to drink it. Looks delicious. How much did you spend for it? About $1.50, unless you purchased it in the city, then you probably shelled out more than that.
Do you know you just spent thousands more on that bottle than you had to?
Experts say that buying bottled water will cost you two thousand times more money than you would spend drinking regular tap water. That’s not very economical.
Now, I know what you’re thinking. ‘Drink water from the tap? Are you kidding? I’m not putting that in my body. That water is stored in places with all kinds of contaminants and chemicals and it comes through dirty, rusty pipes.’
Well, you are not wrong. However, less than 60% of the bottled water you buy actually comes from natural springs. The rest of it is no different than the water coming out of your faucet. It’s just filtered and put in a bottle. Makes you wonder about what you just purchased.
You are not alone, by the way. According to the Beverage Marketing Corporation, in 2019 United States consumers collectively spent $34.6 billion (that’s billion with a B) on bottled water. 1,500 bottles are purchased every second of the day.
And what happens after you drink it, you toss the bottle away. Where does that bottle go? Now you’re a good person so you recycled it, but you are in the minority on this. An estimated 80% of empty plastic bottles wind up in our nation’s landfills.
So, let’s review the product in your hand. You’ve spent a heck of a lot more than you had too, there is no guarantee that it’s natural and more than likely that bottle is going to pollute the earth. Maybe it wasn’t such a good idea after all.
