Say No To Bottled Water!!!
Basic home water filtration is more convenient, produces higher quality water and costs a fraction of what bottled water costs. "10 times the quality, 1/10th the cost and no pollution!"
Bottled water causes over 60,000,000 plastic bottles to be produced, filled, transported and disposed of "every day" in America. It is an environmental nightmare.
- It takes 3 times as much water to produce the bottle as it does to fill it.
- Use of fossil fuels and the related emissions from transporting dense, heavy containers of water throughout America make it even worse.
- Plastic takes over 300 years to degrade in nature.
