Average amount of water used per week is 732 Litres of Water!!! Plastic Bottles of Water In Canada, per capita, bottled water consumption grew 40% from 1999-2004. In 1999, each Canadian consumed approx. 24.4

litres of bottled water. By 2005 it had increased to about 60 litres per person, with sales worth $657.7 million. Bottled water ranks as the second largest commercial beverage sold in the US on a volume basis. In Canada, it now outpaces the consumption if each of these beverages; Coffee, tea, apple juice and milk

In contrast to tap water, which is distributed to energy efficient infrastructure, transporting bottled water over long distances involved burning massive quantities of fossil fuels. An estimated 88% of water bottles are not recycled in Canada. Canadians sent 65 million kilograms of

plastic beverage containers to landfill in 2002. These bottles take 1000 years to biodegrade and may leak toxic additives into the ground water. Types of Water Dasani bottled water (owned by Coca-Cola) is

actually filtered municipal tap water, bottles in Brampton Calgary. Aquafina water (owned by Pepsi) is also sourced from municipalities. Canadians have started asking: Why pay for something that flows from a tap? In Canada, tap water is tested more than bottled water.

Canadian Tap water is also fluorinated, better for your teeth. A number of scientists have shown that bottled water is often less safe than tap water. Industry The bottled water industry is the most unregulated resource industry in the U.S. and Canada.

Often corporations pay very little for the water they extract from the ground of the tap, and consumers pay 240- 10,000 times more for bottled water than they would for tap water. Bottled water costs more than gasoline. Several Canadian cities have banned the sale of water bottles to various degrees, including Charlottetown, Nelson B.C., Waterloo Ontario, and St. Johns NFL.
