Tap Water is the Smart Way to Stay Healthy & Hydrated

08/25/2021

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. Your body is made up of about 60% water and every cell needs water to work properly. Water regulates body temperature, removes wastes, lubricates and cushions joints, and helps brain function.

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 it's a more economical and environmentally-friendly choice than bottled water.

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 will cost you about $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!

Bottled water isn't any safer or cleaner than tap water. We meet or exceed all required state and federal regulations for safe drinking water.

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 bottle filled with tap water, you help reduce plastic pollution and support a less wasteful process.

So cheers to tap water – the affordable, sustainable way to stay healthy and hydrated!
