Water Bottle Facts

  • It is a more sustainable practice to Reuse, than to Recycle: Nationally, only 10% of plastic water bottles are recycled.
  • Our water is GOOD water: 44% of ‘purified’ bottled water sold in the U.S. started out as municipal water.
  • It takes 2,000 times more energy to produce a bottle of water than it does to produce tap water.
  • Nearly 2.5 billion bottles of water a year are sold in New York alone— stacked up end to end, they’d reach the moon.
  • Manufacturing that much plastic releases more than 800,000 metric tons of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere, contributing to global climate change.
  • Plastic water bottles require up to 47 million gallons of oil per year to produce.
  • 827,000 to 1.3 million tons of plastic PET water bottles were produced in the U.S. in 2006, requiring the energy equivalent of 50 million barrels of oil. 76.5 percent of these bottles ended up in landfills.
  • Due to plastic’s slow decay rate, the vast majority of all plastics ever produced still exist — somewhere.
