Bottled Water: The Raw Numbers

Over at DiscoverMagazine.com, there’s a quick piece on bottled water’s environmental impact. According to the post, 25 percent of bottled water comes from a tap (instead of a mountain spring, a glacier or whatever). But tap water only accounts for 14 percent of fresh water use, and of that, just .5 percent is drank. The real problem with bottled water is the bottle part. Every day… yes, each day… we throw 76,000,000 plastic bottles away.

About Me

My photo
I started pound360 to channel my obsession with vitamins, running and the five senses. Eventually, I got bored focusing on all that stuff, so I came back from a one month hiatus in May of 2007 (one year after launching Pound360) and broadened my mumblings here to include all science.
