50 million plastic bottles of bottled water are consumed every year worldwide, of which only 24% are recycled.
151,000,000,000 barrels of oil are needed & 22,500,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide are produced to make these bottles.
8,000 plastic bottled water bottles are thrown away every second in the trash.
$200 million is spent every year around the world on bottled water.
If just 1 person stopped buying bottled water, it would relieve the environment of about 200 plastic bottles a year.
