Bottled water is so very convenient it has become the drink of choice for many people around the world. In 2007, more than 200 billion littres of bottled water were sold worldwide. In the US, bottled water has outsold both milk and beer.
How much energy is needed to make the bottled water? Scientists has estimated that the production of plastic bottles to meet the demand for bottled water consumption uses 50 million barrels of oil annually.
Do you think we can change our lifestyle to reduce the consumption of bottled water?
