The choice is clear

 
 
 
Did you know there are a lot of benefits of choosing tap water over bottled water?
 
The importance of choosing tap water over bottled water is highlighted in the following statistics. The choice is clear to choose tap water for your health, the environment and for your hip pocket.
 
Environment
 
Up to 373 million single-use plastic bottles end up in waste every year in Australia and only 36% of bottles are recycled annually.
 
 
On average 5.7 million Australians use single-use bottled water in any given week.  
 
A simple change, using refillable bottles instead of single-use plastic, can have a big impact. 
 
 
 
Finance
 
On average Australians spend $680 million each year on bottled water. 
 
That equates to paying more than 2000 times the price of tap water for its bottled water counterpart.
 
The cost of 1 litre of bottled water equates to 6000 glasses of tap water. 
 
Choosing tap and using reusable bottles saves you money.
