Bottled Water vs Filtered
While most of us are aware of the environmental impact bottled water has on the environment few of us really think of the expense we are forking out a year on drinking it.
In 2015 Australian’s purchased over 726 million litres of water.
If the average cost of water costs $2.75 per litre means Australian’s spent up to $2billion last year.
Here are some fun bottled water facts;
- Bottled water costs double the cost of a litre of petrol.
- Bottled water creates over 60,000 tons of greenhouses gases a year in Australia alone.
- Less than 40% of water bottles are recycled and take over 1,000 years to bio-degrade.
A filtered water system through Mackie Plumbing and Gas costs, including installation, from $320. Systems retail from $299 not including labour.
Suddenly filtered water in home seems a lot more convenient and cost effective than purchasing bottled water.
