Good question – after all, haven’t we always been advised to drink bottled water as the best source of filtered water in or away from home? Why should we need water purifiers with or without reusable filters?
Why Bottled Water Is Not the Answer
“Purified water” sold in bottles has steadily become a significant, growing environmental hazard and a potential health risk. Are you startled by that statement? If you are, it’s not surprising, given the advertising to the contrary in what is a US$35 billion “pure water “industry.
Environmental impact includes the 4 liters (1.05 gallons) of drinking water, 90g of oil, and 62g of carbon emissions to manufacture just one 1-liter plastic water bottle. On top of this comes the impact of transportation and often global export of up to 45 billion bottles, the 33 million tonnes of discarded plastic that will finish up in landfills, and the uncounted mass that pollutes our waterways and green space. Even though they are ‘reusable’, water bottles less than 1/3 are recycled.
Health concerns stem from a number of authorities, including the World Health Organization warning for bacterial contamination, and from the NRDC (Natural Resources Defense Council). The NRDC tested 1,000 bottles of water across 103 brands of bottled water. Far from being uniformly pure, over 30 brands – 333 bottles out of 1,000 – were contaminated with bacteria and synthetic organic chemicals, and one brand was found to have traces of arsenic above legal limits.
