Why Tap Water is the Smart Choice

02/19/2019

Proper hydration is absolutely essential for our overall health. And there's no question that water is the healthier beverage option over sugary sodas and juices.

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-serve 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.

Get the most of our daily water consumption by using a reusable water bottle that you can easily refill with tap water. You’ll save money and help the environment by choosing tap over bottled water.
