KANGEN WATER IS AN ECO-FRIENDLY SOLUTION TO OUR PLASTIC CRISIS
BOTTLED WATER IS DESTROYING OUR ENVIRONMENT + ECO SYSTEMS ALL OVER THE WORLD
IT REQUIRES OVER THREE LITRES OF WATER TO PRODUCE ONE LITRE OF BOTTLED WATER
50 BILLION WATER BOTTLES ARE CONSUMED WORLDWIDE PER YEAR
49% OF BOTTLED WATER IS JUST PURIFIED TAP WATER
WATER FROM HOME FILTRATION SYSTEMS COST LESS THAN 1 CENT PER GALLON
BOTTLED WATER CAN COST 1,000 TIMES MORE THAN THAT
THE AVERAGE PERSON IN THE UNITED STATES ALONE, NOW USES MORE THAN 35 GALLONS OF BOTTLED WATER PER YEAR. THATS ABOUT 270 BOTTLES PER PERSON.
WHY THAT SUCKS
Every year, the equivalent of 17 million barrels of oil are used to produce plastic water and soda bottles in the U.S alone – that’s not including transportation.
The small oil sources we do have are taken to be used on something that is only used once, then thrown away.
We then take oil from other countries, negatively affecting our political relationships and dangerously and expensivley drilling out pristine eco systems.
The water industry misleadingly tells us that these bottles are recyclable. But being recyclable is not the same as actually being recycled. Only 1/3 of plastic bottles are actually recycled, meaning that 2/3 end up in our landfills and environment.
The bottles that actually do reach the stage of being recycled, are only able to be recycled once more before they too, will end up in landfill.
Recycling is the last resort, not the solution.
Water is the very thing that keeps us alive, the very thing that supports all life on earth and is the most vital element to our bodies after air. And yet, it’s destroying us because of how we choose to conveniently contain it, store it and sell it.
One million plastic water bottles are made every minute. By the time you’ve read this and looked and the photos, another million plastic water bottles will be made – and they will stay on our planet for 450 years! That’s how long it takes for just one plastic water bottle to break down. Not so convenient after all.
Especially not for millions of animals killed each year due to the plastic they consume in the ocean. I’m sure we’ve all heard the statistics by now, that by 2050 there will be more plastic in the ocean than fish.
50% of all water bottles sold are used once – then thrown away. A bottled drink is bought, consumed within minutes, and then throw away – and for that convenience, it’s now left on our planet for another 450 years to never be used again.
WHAT THEY DON’T TELL YOU
Due to harsh chemicals and an overall poor quality of tap water, bottled water has become the norm in many households. But what most don’t realise, is that the chemical pollution standards are nearly identical between bottled water and tap water.
Extensive research done by The Environmental Working Group (EWG) found 38 contaminants in 10 popular brands of bottled water, including disinfection byproducts, industrial chemicals, arsenic, fertilizer residue and pain medication. WHAT. EVEN.
Anything we can do to quickly and permanently phase out plastic water bottles will massivley reduce the devastating impact it is having on our environment.
This recent news article about a dead whale washed up in Indonesia with more than 1,000 items of plastic found in it’s stomach, speaks for itself.
