Knocking bottled water out of our lives can only be a WIN!

What you can do with a 500 ml bottle of water!

The Centre for Science and Environment in Delhi has found that 17 brands of bottled water tested by them had  upto 70 per cent of pesticides in them. The top five brands were crammed with various kinds of pesticides. The water used by them for bottling was not from any mountain spring or the Himalayas as shown on their advertisements. It was from municipal water!

Similar tests done in USA found that bottled water was collected from municipal as well as polluted water supplies near contaminated areas!

It never hurts to know more about that dreadful bottled water and how it increases our carbon footprint unforgivably!

110 g. CO2e locally sourced and using local distribution.

160 g CO2e average

215 g. CO2e travelling 600 miles per road.

 

A bottle a day would add up to 0.6 per cent of the 10-tonne lifestyle, says Mike Berners-Lee in his book How bad are bananas? The carbon footprint of everything.

 

He says at more than 1000 times more carbon intensive than its tap alternative, knocking bottled water out of our lives has got to be a simple win. It doesn’t even taste better.
