In 1976 Americans drank an average of 1.6 gallons of bottled water every year. Roughly 30 years later consumption increased to 30 gallons per person, according to the Earth Policy Institute —- despite the fact that bottled water can cost anywhere from 240 to 10,000 times more than tap water, which is brought right to your home for pennies a gallon.
A simple way to help out is buy a BPA free bottle and put a filter on your home tap. Or, use something like a Britta to fill your bottle from. You’ll save money, have cleaner water, and help the environment.
