US Consumption of Bottled Water at Highest Level
Bottled water consumption continues to grow, despite increasing information about the environmental damage caused as landfills are choked with discarded plastic bottles. The bottled water industry is growing at twice the rate of the US economy.
Though more information is available about the environmental costs of bottled water than ever before, and despite the discovery that most bottled water is just filtered municipal tap water in a plastic bottle, sales of bottled water continue to rise. Numbers in 2011 indicate that around 200 bottles of water are sold for each person in the US. That equals 9.1 billion gallons — 29.2 gallons of bottled water per person. In fact, the bottled water industry is growing at twice the rate of the US economy.
