Filtered Water vs. Bottled Water
Improve the quality of your life by improving the quality of your water.
In light of the coronavirus outbreak, a lot of Americans are stocking up on supplies and going into quarantine. Among the items that are being cleared out of grocery stores, such as hand sanitizer and toilet paper, is bottled water. Even though the pandemic is extremely unlikely to affect the availability of drinking water in the U.S., people are still hyper aware of the health, safety, and accessibility of their lifestyle practices. Even before the term “COVID-19” was on everyone’s lips, the consumption of bottled water worldwide was on the rise.
Bottled water definitely appears to be the better option at first glance. Nicely packaged and sealed, it certainly looks sterile and safe. However, this is not necessarily the case. In fact, according to a report by World Wildlife Fund International, “there are more standards regulating tap water in the United States than those applied to the bottled water industry.” Plus, even if the source of the bottled water is clean and safe, remember that the water in question is being bottled in plastic.
There are some alarming facts about the environmental impact of bottled water. For example, bottles used to package water take over 1,000 years to bio-degrade 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.” In addition, it is estimated that about three liters of water is used to package one liter of bottled water, meaning water is being wasted in the process.

Many people might consider recycling to be a solution, but there is still the energy required to manufacture plastic water bottles to be considered. According to The Pacific Institute, the creation of one ton of PET plastic, which is made into water bottles, releases three tons of CO2 into the atmosphere.
This is why filtered water proves to be the superior option in most cases. The benefits of filtered water aren’t limited to just the person drinking it—water filtration can help improve the entire ecosystem. Plus, the cost of bottled water can be a lot more expensive than having a filtered water system installed in your home or office….so it makes economical sense as well!
