By: Jenna Nolan


Sustainability is something maintaining its supply resources. If something should be able to continue forever it would be sustainable.

Bottled Water vs. Tap Water: which is more sustainable?

Tap water is more sustainable than bottled water.

  • It takes 3 liters of water to produce 1 liter of bottled water.
  • Bottling water produced more than 2.5 million tons of carbon dioxide
  • Making enough plastic to bottle 31.2 billion liters of water requires more than 106 megajoules of energy.
  • Producing the bottles for consumption requires the equivalent of more than
    17 million barrels of oil, not including the energy for transportation.
