Some experts claim that Americans alone drink enough bottled water every year that they could stretch around the world over 100 times. Even if that is exaggerated, its safe to say that water bottle usage is exceedingly high. There are countless reasons as to why you should ditch water bottles and today, we at AAA Water Team would like to discuss why you need to stop buying water bottles and consider home water treatments.
Why Filtered Water is Better than Bottled
1) Filtered water is comparable to bottled water. Though most assume that bottled water is quality water, it is not always true. You may end up with something very similar to the water that comes from your tap, without any modifications with water systems. About 25% of bottled water is no different than what you can get from any faucet in your home according to the Natural Resources Defense Council.
2) Price for bottled water adds up. You are still overpaying when you take into consideration what you are getting though you can easily buy 40 bottles of water for a few dollars at your local big box store. You more than make up for it in the long run even though you will spend more in upfront costs to install a water filtration system in your home.
3) Not all plastic water bottles get recycled. More often than not, people presume the plastic water bottles are being recycled. This is not always so. In a rough estimate, approximately 80% of the plastic is actually sent in waste, significantly impacting the environment. Water systems installed in your home can help in the cause.
4) Your health is at risk with bottled water. Few realize the health risks drinking packaged water. The chemicals in plastic can potentially leech in to the water you drink, and experts say when these water bottles are left in heat, they can lead to other hazards. Imagine what it is doing to your health if you make drinking water from a bottle a habit, though this may not sound like a big deal if you only drink bottled water every now. A chemical linked to serious health concerns such as heart disease in some plastic water bottles contain bisphenol A (BPA). To stay safe, it is in your better interests to find alternative solutions for your drinking water.
