The impact of bottled water on natural resources is 3,500 times higher than for tap water, scientists have found.
Researchers also found the impact of bottled water on ecosystems is 1,400 times higher than tap water.
Moving forward, It is crucial to improve access to private and public water to buildings where we can bring our bottles and don’t need to buy one.
Instant filtered water systems: an environmentally friendly solution.
By supplying up to three different types of water from a single unit, instant filtered drinking water systems directly address the needs – and wants – of people when it comes to water, reducing the desire for bottled water products.

Instant filtered drinking water systems have self-contained filters, heaters, and carbonators, meaning they deliver all the enhanced benefits of these different water types while still utilising tap water. This makes them a long-lasting and cost-effective solution.
With no single-use parts, the only transportation requirements for instant filtered drinking water systems following installation are the occasional replacement of filters, reusable CO2 canisters for sparkling water, and any maintenance that the units may require. This reduces the need for trucks to be
