Bottled Water


Do you know how much bottled water Americans consume annually?  Do you know how many plastic water bottles get thrown in the trash every day? The numbers are staggering:

  • Roughly 50 billion plastic water bottles end up in U.S. landfills each year — 140 million every day! That’s enough, laid end to end, to reach China and back each day.
  • In 2008, Americans drank an average 215 bottles of water each for a total of 66 billion bottles. Of that total, only 22% was recycled.
  • We are shipping 1 billion water bottles a week around the U.S. in ships, trains, and trucks.
  • We are paying 2 to 4 times the cost of gasoline for a product that is virtually free.

The problem with plastics:

  • It takes over 700 years for plastic to decompose.
  • Plastic pollution is a world-wide problem. There is a growing "garbage patch" of plastic estimated to be more than twice the size of Texas floating in the North Pacific Ocean.
  • Ecosystems and wildlife are negatively impacted by plastic debris.
  • Disposable plastic water bottles are made out of oil which is a finite natural resource. Plastic bottles require energy to make and transport. Currently, the amount of oil we use to produce water bottles each year (17 million barrels) could fuel over 1,000,000 cars for an entire year.

The environmental impact of one disposable bottle:

  • Picture a disposable water bottle ¼ full of petroleum. That is how much petroleum it takes to make and distribute a single plastic bottle of water.
  • It takes THREE bottles of water to make and distribute ONE disposable plastic bottle of water.
  • 120 grams of greenhouse gases are generated by a single disposable plastic bottle of water.

Bottled Water is US Market Favorite Packaged Drink

March 10, 2017 @ 02:02 PM

Healthy, convenient, and safe, bottled water is America’s favorite packaged drink, according to the latest data from BMC. Bottled water sales increased by 10 percent in 2016, and now total $16 billion (wholesale). In 2016, total U.S. bottled water consumption grew by 8.6 percent to 12.8 billion gallons, up from 11.8 billion gallons in 2015. In addition, per-capita consumption is up 7.7 percent in 2016, with every person in America drinking an average of 39.3 gallons of bottled water last year, while average intake of carbonated soft drinks slipped to about 38.5 gallons, BMC statistics show. 

Bottled water has become consumers’ No. 1 drink for many reasons, says Joe Doss, IBWA president and CEO. “Research and polling indicate people are continuing to make the switch from other packaged drinks to bottled water. Some of these reasons include: 

  • Bottled water is a healthy packaged drink choice. 
  • Bottled water tastes great and is refreshing. 
  • Bottled water is convenient for on-the-go lifestyles. 
  • Bottled water has trusted safety and quality and is comprehensively regulated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). 
  • Bottled water packaging has a proven record of safety. 
  • Bottled water is sold in containers that are 100-percent recyclable. 
  • Bottled water has the lowest water and energy use ratio of all packaged beverages. 
  • Bottled water has a tiny water-use footprint. The entire industry uses less than 0.011 percent of all water used in the United States each year. 
  • Bottled water containers use much less PET plastic than soft drinks containers (9.89 grams vs. 23.9 grams, on average for 16.9-ounce containers). Soda needs a thicker plastic container due to its carbonation.

Guess What's Showing Up In Our Shellfish? One Word: Plastics

September 21, 2017 @ 09:38 AM

Sarah Dudas doesn't mind shucking an oyster or a clam in the name of science.

 

But sit down with her and a plate of oysters on the half-shell or a bucket of steamed Manila clams, and she'll probably point out a bivalve's gonads or remark on its fertility.

 

"These are comments I make at dinner parties," she said. "I've spent too much time doing dissections. I've done too many spawnings."

 

And lately, the shellfish biologist is making other unappetizing comments to her dinner party guests — about plastics in those shellfish.

 

In 2016, she and her students at Vancouver Island University planted thousands of clams and oysters across coastal British Columbia and let them soak in the sand and saltwater of the Strait of Georgia. Three months later, they dissolved hundreds of them with chemicals, filtered out the biodegradable matter and looked at the remaining material under a microscope. Inside this Pacific Northwest culinary staple, they found a rainbow of little plastic particles.

 

"So when you eat clams and oysters, you're eating plastics as well," Dudas says.

 

Funded by the Canadian government and British Columbia's shellfish trade association, the project aimed to learn whether the shellfish aquaculture industry may be contaminating its own crop by using plastic infrastructure like nets, buoys and ropes. The experiment was a response to those claims by local environmental groups.

 

But tracking the origins of tiny plastic particles in a big ocean is new territory. So Dudas turned to Peter Ross, who has studied the effects of ocean pollution on sea life for 30 years.
