Women in water-stressed regions, walk on average, 3.5 miles everyday to get water to their homes. Mathematical Evidence: In a year (365 days), one woman will walk 1277.5 miles. | On average, Americans buy 500,000,000 bottles of water every week.Mathematical Evidence: In one year (52 weeks), together, America will buy 26,000,000,000 plastic water bottles. | It takes 3 times the amount of water to make each bottle, than to fill it.Mathematical Evidence: If a bottle holds 16.8 oz, it will take 50.4 oz to make the bottle. |
