Why Tap Water is the Smart Choice

02/19/2019

Did you know that drinking tap water is an easy way to stay healthy, save money, and help the planet?!

Proper hydration is absolutely essential for our overall health. Water helps your brain function, flush waste from the body, and regulate body temperature.

Drinking tap water is the best way to stay hydrated. Tap water is a healthier choice than juice, sports drinks, or soda that are high in unnecessary sugar and calories.

And by choosing tap water over bottled to stay hydrated, you're not only benefiting your health but your wallet and the environment, too.

Recommendations vary depending on weight, age, and activity level, but a general guideline for how much water you should drink is 8, 8-ounce glasses each day. That's a gallon every other day.

A gallon’s worth of single-serving bottled water costs almost $9.50. That same gallon of water from your tap is less than a penny! Calculated over year, that's a savings of more than $1,700!

Besides saving you money, drinking tap water is better for the environment. Most single-use plastic water bottles end up in a landfill rather than being recycled. And the production and transportation of plastic bottles and packaging are a drain on resources.

By using a reusable water bottle that you can refill with tap water you help reduce plastic pollution, saving you money and helping the plant.
