Bottle of water By: oscar c.& Daniela g.

Misconceptions of Bottled Water
  • Millions of dollars are spent on advertising campaigns to give consumers the perception that water bottles comes from pristine mountain springs or magical underground aquifers,assuring purity and quality.
  • The fact that bottled water is oftentimes only a little more than just tap water in a bottle...sometimes worse!
  • There are no regulations or requirements that bottled water must be any higher in quality than tap water.
So what's the big deal?

What you may not know:

  • Plastic bottles can take up to 1000 years before they even begin to compose
  • 90% of the cost of bottled water is due to the bottle itself
  • 80% of plastic bottles are not recycled
  • 38 Million plastic water bottles go to the dump per year in America (not including soda)
  • The average American consumes 166 plastic bottles of water a year.

The end!
