How Much Could You Save? Try the Bottled Water Calculator

On average, tap water costs U.S. taxpayers 0.2 cents per gallon – which is roughly 750-2,700 times cheaper than bottled water on a per gallon basis, according to the Environmental Protection Agency. The EPA has also found most of this water to be very safe. Over 90 percent of U.S. municipal water systems regularly meet or exceed the EPA’s regulatory and monitoring requirements.

Why are you breaking your budget when you can break the bottled water habit?

Use our bottled water calculator to help you compute the financial and environmental impact of your bottled water consumption.


Think Outside the Bottle: Bottled Water Alternatives Webinar

RPN Bottled Water Guide

Bottled water is expensive and resource intensive. Tap water is safe, inexpensive, and readily available. That's why so many institutions are switching from bottled water to tap. Join Center for a New American Dream's Responsible Purchasing Network for this free webinar about bottled water impacts and tap water solutions this Tuesday, August 26 from 2:00 to 3:30 EST.

Presentations will include:

  • Mark Hays, Corporate Accountability International, on the social and environmental impacts of bottled water;
  • Courtney Godwin, RPN, on best practices in bottled water alternatives; 
  • Nancy Read and Nelson Nieves, NYC Museum of Modern Art, on their office's switch to bottle-less water coolers; and 
  • Chandra Johnson, City of San Francisco, on the City’s June 2007 policy phasing out bottled water and their experiences thus far.
