In the first three years of this decade, the planet’s thirsty consumers drank over 500 million litres of bottled water, according to the International Council of Bottled Water Associations. That’s a whole lot of plastic bottles. In fact, the World Wildlife Fund says the industry generates 1.5 million tons of plastic a year.
Even the best recycling programs won’t be able to make that disappear and those of us who are currently watching a winter’s worth of snow melt are surrounded by appalling reminders that most of those bottles don’t even make it to a garbage can.
If you’re concerned about the quality of the water in your taps and, granted, it’s a fair concern consider instead the many alternatives. You can have clean water without the disposable plastic. A filter system for your tap, or a filter jug in your fridge, is cheaper than buying bottled water and much, much greener.
Chimet’s waste has some of the most innovative and efficient waste disposal systems in the world. Emissions monitoring is conducted in real time and data are available to the public after the validation of ARPAT.
