“Too much good water lost to bottle all drinks”


“The International Bottled Water Association, ever sensitive to criticism that it’s wasting precious resources, has commissioned its first ever study to figure out how much water goes into producing one liter. Released this month the data shows that for North American companies

to make 1 liter of your favorite liquid beverage requires:

* 1.39 liters to make one liter of water.

* 2.02 liters of water  for 1 liter of soda.

* 4 liters of water to make 1 liter of beer,

* 4.74 liters to make 1 liter of wine. Hard alcohol, it turns out, is the greediest, guzzling

*34.55 liters of water for every liter of hard liquor.

Plus environmental activists have estimated that about 50 billion (mostly plastic) bottles are thrown away every year.
