‘Invest In Our Planet’ is the theme of Earth Day 2022 and we love the message! It is the very purpose that we have worked hard to provide drinking water systems that improve the quality of tap water but are also efficient, effective and eco-friendly.
It will undoubtedly take a collective effort to invest in our planet and change the course of its future. But, that investment can start with a million smaller investments. Things like smart water-using habits, water conservation efforts, reducing bottled water consumption and waste, limiting pollution and choosing products and services that put the environment first.
How Bottled Water Impacts the Environment
Let’s get straight to the point. Bottled water is popular nationwide and is a multi-billion dollar industry. Sadly, however, it is not the way we want to invest in our future because it is clear the negative impact it has on our today.
91% of plastic bottles are not recycled and they end up in our landfills as toxic waste. It takes at least 450 years for a single plastic bottle to decompose. Single-use bottles are usually made of polyethylene terephthalate (PET) — a material that photodegrades instead of biodegrading. Similarly alarming is that according to the Water Footprint Calculator, it takes 22 gallons of water to make one pound of plastic. That means it takes at least double the amount of water to produce a single-use bottle as the amount of water in the actual bottle.
Invest In Our Planet With a Better Drinking Water Alternative
Rather than spending money on bottled water, you are better off investing in a drinking water system like our reverse osmosis systems. They will improve your home’s drinking water but with more eco-friendly processes compared to bottled water. We can walk you through the decisions and choices from start to finish. And, we will take into account all factors including your household’s water demands, budget, water test results, location and more.
Investing in our planet does not have to be difficult. Furthermore, it should not be left in the hands of policymakers but rather, in the hands of consumers and citizens who care about the condition and future of Earth. Are you ready to invest?
