the high cost of drinking bottled water

Dec 17, 2016 | for home, for office, general, water quality

Can you believe it? The average Australian spends up to $2800 a year on bottled water.

A study by Choice, Australia’s leading consumer advocacy group, found that if you drink two litres a day from the tap, you’ll pay about $1.50 a year. Drink the same amount from single-serve bottles, however, and you could be looking at more than $2800 a year.

Not many of us drink three bottles of water a day, but even if you consume just one 600ml bottle of water a day your annual outlay would be $1278 (if you’re paying an average $3.50 a bottle).

Quick, I need a drink! Even milk and soft drink would be a cheaper option. Alternatively, you could order this “liquid gold” in bulk to try to stop the money flow.

But the cost of having a bottled water cooler (at an average rental of $150 a year) with four 15L bottles delivered each month (at $13.50 per bottle) would still set you back about $800 a year. And by choosing either of these options you are adding to the global problem of plastic pollution in our lands, rivers, coasts, beaches and oceans.
