Save Money: Buy a Water Bottle

Filed Under: Water Purification and Storage at 10:16 am | By: Mauricio Matusiak, Senior Editor
Bottled water

Water is great for you. Drinking a lot of water is essential for a healthy diet and active lifestyle. But the question is: do you need to pay for bottled water?

The answer is no. Save money: buy a water bottle instead of a bottle of water.

Bottled water manufacturers’ claims their products are purer and safer than tap water. Not always the case. A recent report shows that bottled water may come from city pipes, just like the tap water you drink at home. About 25 percent of all bottled water is taken from municipal water sources, including Coca-Cola’s Dasani and Pepsi’s Aquafina.

Furthermore, according to a study by the Natural Resources Defense Council, about 22 percent of brands tested had at least one sample of chemical contaminants above the strict state health limits.

So, why would you pay for a bottle of water when the quality of the water is just as pure as tap water? Think about how much money you could be saving. If you buy one or two bottles of water a day, you are spending anywhere between $1000 and $1500 a year.

An entire water purification system won’t cost you more than $100. Top-quality water bottles cost anywhere between $5 and $10. We are talking about a priceless investment for your family.

Plus, let’s not forget the environment. Think about it when you take the recycle trash outside (we really hope you do recycle). You can reduce or completely end the waste of empty bottles of water. Approximately 1.5 million barrels of oil are used to make plastic water bottles, while transporting these bottles burns even more oil.

Sounds like a perfect plan. Buy a water bottle, start saving money and protecting our planet.

    I agree very informative. We are always told to drink more water and stay hydrated, etc. But so many water bottles are clogging our landfills that people need to start reusing water bottles to help with this problem. I agree that serial water drinkers should purchase a stainless steel, aluminum, glass or reusable plastic water bottle.

    This is very important information and needs to get out to as many people as possible. Did you know? It takes 17 million barrels of oil (that’s enough to fuel 1 million cars for a year) to produce a year’s worth of water bottles…
    Worse, 86% of those water bottles are thrown into landfills, not recycled…
