Filtered water is better for your health and the environment than bottled water.
Bottled Water Facts
Producing bottle water uses:
17 million barrels of oil globally each year1
3x the amount of water that each bottle will eventually hold1
Producing bottle water creates:
2.5 million tons of CO21
1.5 million tons of plastic globally each year2
Even if you recycle plastic water bottles:
Over 90% of the global warming impact has already occurred.3
Most of the impact occurs during the manufacturing and transportation stages of bottled water production.3
Less than 27.2% of the plastic waste is recycled4
As our demand on natural resources grows, so does our responsibility to make a difference. By switching from bottled water to PUR faucet filtered water, you'll get 400 gallons of clean filtered water a year—which is like making thousands of plastic water bottles disappear.5
