Water is life. It revolves around everything we do and consume. Therefore, it is understandable that we are concerned about what we put into our bodies. And the bottled water marketing knows that very well. They have worked hard to make us believe that tap water is so polluted and undrinkable, and thus, the only solution to it is drinking bottled water.
But bottled water is polluting the environment — a lot.
The bottled water marketing scheme has historically worked, as bottled water prices skyrocketed 700% during 1997-2005, and from 1997 to 2017, bottled water consumption increased from 16% to 42%. But unfortunately, along with it, environmental degradation has also significantly progressed. For example, did you know that only 38 billion used water bottles are thrown each year in the US, and it takes 1000 years for one bottle of water to decompose? And a whopping 80% of water bottles we consume end up in landfills, with an overflowing 2 million tons of plastic waste dumped in the landfills – only from the bottles!
Also, the most important thing to know is that some bottled water is NOT containment-free water. Research has shown that bottled water may be prone to contamination due to bad handling and inadequate storage. Of course, we are not claiming that all bottled water is contaminated, but are you willing to take the chances? If your answer is no, try to avoid this by installing an Aquabelle water filter at home.
And this is not all of it. Studies have revealed that the plastic waste coming from bottled water decomposition (and not only) releases toxins in the environment, which are hazardous and cause several health issues, including reproductive problems and cancer.
Although the first part of this article is quite bleak with the statistics, the good news is that we already have several safer and eco-friendly alternatives here at Aquabelle.
Protect the environment with Aquabelle water filters.
One of the top benefits of using Aquabelle water filters is reducing the consumption of bottled water.

However, getting rid of plastic bottled water is not the only environmental advantage to using the Aquabelle water filters, otherwise we wouldn’t be writing this article. Another significant benefit to switching to the Aquabelle water filters is their actual positive impact on the environment. Have you ever heard of carbon water filters?
The Aquabelle ceramic carbon water filter is specially designed with high capacity absorption of water-borne contaminants. The filter’s design and components are highly effective in removing impurities, chlorine, heavy metals, including lead, pesticides, trace pharmaceuticals, and microplastics. While most of the competitors’ carbon filters require replacement once in Three to six months, the Aquabelle activated carbon filter needs replacement once in two years! This means it is a no-waste and budget-friendly solution with minimal maintenance.
The activated carbon water filter will not only be best friends with your pocket and your health. As mentioned, it is also recyclable with biodegradable organic elements in the filter.
It is crucial to be aware of what you’re putting in your body, especially when it comes to water. Do not become a victim of marketing schemes of very harmful products to the environment and potentially dangerous to your health. Instead, we urge you to look for the best and healthiest options for your family, your pets, and the environment. We recommend you use Aquabelle water filters because not only they’re plastic-free and zero waste, but they’re also low cost compared to bottled water and other water filter options.
