Filter Your Own Water
The results of a new study released by the International Bottled Water Association show that, at peak efficiency, the industry uses an average of 1.39 liters of water for every one liter of bottled water. Oddly enough, the IBWA is celebrating this statistic as a victory, but as TheDailyGreen.com points out, “That means more than one bottle's worth of water is wasted for every three produced. Imagine dumping one glass of water for every three you pour from the tap. Does that sound like efficient use of resources? (Wasting one in four bottle's worth of water is the rate for producing individual-sized servings of bottled water; for the bigger home and office-sized water bottles, the waste is worse, with about two-thirds of a bottle wasted for every one produced.)”
