How Much Plastic Is In The Water You Drink?

When you look at a bottle of drinking water, you probably think to yourself, “That looks crystal clear… not a drop of imperfection.” And when you do that, you are playing right into the hands of giant water production companies. 

Because as it turns out, the “purified” or “natural spring” water we spend our hard-earned money on (about $100 per person, per year, according to one study) isn’t nearly as clean as you think. 

There are a lot of reasons to ditch bottled water, but this one may be the most important one of all: 

It’s full of plastic. 

That’s right, the beverage we spend $12.3 billion annually on to stay hydrated is doing us more harm than good due to the shocking amount of plastic floating around in it. 

How much, exactly? 

Well, according to a 2018 study released by Orb Media, a liter of bottled water from big brands like Dasani, Aquafina and Nestle, contains about 10.4 plastic particles. Another study tested 11 of the most massive brands of bottled water and found that the the average was 314 particles per liter that had probable odds of being plastic. 

And those are just the ones we know about: researchers think there are likely smaller bits of plastic we’re also ingesting -- they’re just too tiny to detect. 

When you drink these plastics, you are exposed to the harmful toxins within the plastic. One of the more well-known is bisphenol A, or BPA. This is an industrial chemical used to make certain plastics and resins since the 1960s. And research has linked BPA exposure to a variety of health risks: cancers, kidney and liver damage, heart disease, fertility issues, male impotence and other conditions. 

Right now there is limited evidence on the long-term effects of drinking plastics, but what we know about BPA is enough to make a lot of consumers uncomfortable, much in the same way cigarettes made people uneasy long before the surgeon general concluded how deadly they were. 

And that’s not even accounting for what we DO know about plastic bottles’ effect on the environment. 

It can take up to 1,000 years for a plastic bottle to degrade. However, plastic bottles are not biodegradable, so they remain in our environment forever. And when plastic degrades, toxic chemicals are released into the environment. 

So what should we do? Because the bottled water industry is booming: bottled water holds the second largest share of the beverage market in America, ahead of beer, milk and even coffee. In fact, the only beverage that outsells bottled water is soda. In the next 60 seconds, the world will consume a million plastic bottles, according to the Guardian. 

Well, we can’t very well trust these giant corporations to spend millions and millions of dollars to solve the plastic problem -- especially when their sales are higher than ever. Remember the old adage, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it?” That applies here. 

So instead, we need to find alternatives to dangerous bottled water. A way to get the most vital substance on the planet without the dangerous plastics and other impurities that so negatively affect our health. 

Fortunately, there is one way to ensure the water we drink is at its most pure -- so that you can keep you and your family safe and hydrated.
