What is wrong with bottled water?
The price of bottled water is up to 10,000 times the cost of tap water
53 billion gallons of bottled water are consumed globally

Some 4 billion PET bottles end up in the U.S. waste stream each year, costing cities some $70 million in cleanup and landfill costs
It takes about three liters of water and approximately 3.4 mega joules of energy to produce and sell a single liter of water in a plastic bottle
