Bottled Water Costs Consumers and the Environment

In 2009, U.S. consumers purchased 8.45 billion gallons of bottled water:

• Bottles used to package water take over 1,000 years to biodegrade and if incinerated, they produce toxic fumes. It is estimated that over 80% of all single-use water bottles used in the U.S. simply become “litter.”

• Recycling is only feasible in limited circumstances because only PET bottles can be recycled. All other bottles are discarded. Only 1 out of 5 bottles are sent to the recycle bin.

• U.S. landfills are overflowing with 2 million tons of discarded water bottles alone.

• It takes over 1.5 million barrels of oil to meet the demand of U.S. water bottle manufacturing. This amount of oil far exceeds the amount needed to power 100,000 for a year, which does not include fossil fuel and emissions costs of green house gases needed to transport the final product to market.

• It is estimated that actually 3 liters of water is used to package 1 liter of bottled water.
