Environmental Benefits

Bottled Water has a massive environmental footprint.

Consider the cycle required to get the bottled water to a customer;

  • Extract the water from the ground.
  • Purify the water (Sorry to tell you this, but it’s not all sourced from sparkling, bubbling, snow fed streams)
  • Transport it to a bottling plant. Put it into storage at the distribution centre.
  • Load it onto massive trucks and drive it around for delivery. That truck comes back to pick up the empties.
  • Back to a plant to wash the bottles.


Then the whole, expensive, wasteful and environmentally damaging cycle starts all over again.

The Age newspaper said recently;

  • AUSTRALIA’S love affair with bottled water is costing the planet 314,000 barrels of oil a year.
  • According to the Australasian Bottled Water Institute, we spend about $385 million a year on bottled water.
  • “It’s one of the greatest cons ever pulled,” says Clean Up Australia chairman Ian Kiernan.
  • “It’s just lunacy, there is no other word for it. We are squandering our oil resources.”
  • Oil is not the only precious resource being squandered by consumers, with bottled water 2500 times more expensive than the tap variety.
  • With no chlorine added to kill bacteria, bottled water can’t even be considered better for you.
