Let's Do The Math

By replacing over 800 plastic water bottles, each Aqua Gear Tap Water Filtration Bottle protects your wallet, your health, and the environment.   

Let’s do some math to prove it.   

For those of you who are not mathematically inclined, do not worry we have done all the calculations for you. And for those crazy people who do like math, feel free to check the answers.   


Savings to your Wallet

• 1 Aqua Gear Tap Water Filtration Bottle replaces (over) 800 single use plastic water bottles. 
• Average cost of 1 16oz bottled water = $1.50 
• 800 X $1.50 = $1,200 saved 

 And that’s just for one person!


Savings to the Environment

1 Aqua Gear Tap Water Filtration Bottle saves 25 gallons of oil, 200 pounds of CO2, and 300 gallons of water. Plus 800 plastic bottles from landfills. 

 Here’s how: 
• Avg. amount of oil involved in production of 1 gallon of bottled water = 0.25 gallons 
• Avg. amount of C02 involved in production of 1 gallon of bottled water = 2 pounds 
• Avg. amount of waste water involved in production of 1 gallon of bottled water = 3 gallons 

 Since the Aqua Gear Tap Water Filtration Bottlereplaces over 100 gallons of bottled water, multiply all these numbers by 100, and look at how much waste you’ve saved. And that’s just by using one Aqua Gear Tap Water Filtration Bottle!


Savings to your Health

Scientists have found that plastic bottled water has more bacteria than tap water. In fact, 70% of the most popular bottled brands have bacteria, with some reaching levels 100X above those of the permitted level. More information on these findings is provided by the Telegraph:   


And what about the bottled water that is simply tap water repackaged? The out-of-date regulations on tap water pose some serious health risks. Only 91 contaminants are regulated yet over 60,000 are present within the US. More information on these findings provided by the New York Times:   


Bacteria + all sorts of unregulated chemicals = serious health issues. Aqua Gear Water Filtration = one serious solution! 

And that’s one healthier life.
