UK bottled water consumption rose in 2010

The annual report on bottled water consumption in the UK is now out and it’s bad news for the environment. UK bottled water consumption has risen by 0.7% since 2009.

Last year 2,055 million litres of bottled water were consumed in the UK. That’s 33 litres per person (and a lot of plastic). One in every six soft drinks purchased was water, which is astounding considering you can get water for free. Consumers even paid out their hard earned cash for 226 million litres of what was just bottled tap water by another name.

So, in 2011, join us in boycotting bottled water, encourage your friends and colleagues and help us turn the tide.
