The Environmental Impact of Plastic Bottles

Environmental Impact

In the quest to obtain healthier drinking water, millions of people have turned to bottled water. Worldwide annual consumption of bottled water reached 189 billion liters in 2007. The production and disposal of water bottles-both large bottles delivered by truck and small bottles purchased at retail outlets-have a detrimental impact on the environment.

The packaging of bottled water consumes resources.

  • Nearly all bottled water is packaged in plastics.
  • The manufacturing of plastic water bottles requires about 17 million barrels of oil per year for the United States alone.
  • The process of making a ton of the plastic used to make water bottles- Polyethylene terephthalate (PET)-produces about 3 tons of carbon dioxide (CO2).
  • The manufacturing of plastic water bottles creates more than 2.5 million tons of CO2 each year.

The transportation of bottled water pollutes.

  • Imported brands such as Fiji or Perrier are transported by diesel-powered ships, consuming large amounts of oil and giving off substantial CO2 emissions.
  • Domestic water must be transported by from the source to the bottle plant, consuming energy and giving off more emissions.
  • All bottled water-domestic and imported-travels by truck or rail to homes or retail outlets, consuming more energy and emitting more pollution.

Disposing of plastic water bottles causes pollution

  • Only about 20% of plastic bottles are recycled; 80% end up in landfills.
  • Americans send about 40 billion water bottles to landfills each year.
  • Plastic bottles do not begin to decompose in a landfill for 700 years.

The mission of LIFE Ionizers is "Healing the Planet" through the use of alkaline ionized water. We also provide re-usable cylinder-style, lead-free glass bottles to reduce the amount of plastic bottles being used. Our systems make healthy alkaline mineral water from tap water thereby lowering the use of bottled water being delivered and also encourage our clients to use our re-usable glass bottles to take their water to work and play.
