H20hh my god!
Marc shared a great article with the studio from this month’s issue of Fast Company Magazine about the unseen negative effects bottled water has on the environment and the global economy. Ohh my Fiji Water, rest in peace…Everyone should read this article called Message in a Bottle. Below I have highlighted a few of the best facts from the article:
- In 1976, the average American drank 1.6 gallons of bottled water a year, according to Beverage Marketing Corp. Last year, we each drank 28.3 gallons of bottled water.
- If the water we use at home cost what even cheap bottled water costs, our monthly water bills would run $9,000.
- 24% of the bottled water we buy is tap water repackaged by Coke and Pepsi.
- If you bought and drank a bottle of Evian, you could refill that bottle once a day for 10 years, 5 months, and 21 days with San Francisco tap water before that water would cost $1.35.
