Ban the Bottle!
The recommended eight glasses of water a day at Spain´s tap rates equals about 00.49 € per year; that same amount of bottled water is about 1,400 €. It takes 10 million barrels of oil per year to make all the plastic water bottles used in Spain alone. That’s enough oil to fuel 1.3 million cars for a year.
Antimony, which is found in PET plastic bottles, in small doses can cause dizziness and depression; in larger doses it can cause nausea, vomiting and death.
Answer the question below to find out how much you spend on bottled water every year.
On average, how many bottles of water do you purchase each week?
Now take that answer and multiply it by 52 weeks in a year. For example, if you buy 7 bottles of water per week, you would get 7 x 52= 364. This is how many bottles of water you buy per year.
Calculate how much each liter of plastic bottled water costs you and enter the number of liters a year to find out how much you could save by drinking tap water over bottled water!
