In recent years our love affair with bottled water has grown with global consumption up 10% each year, and isan industry that continues booming. But what do we really know about the convenient way to consume water? And why do we trust something that someone else manufactures over what is sourced to us naturally? The facts behind the bottled water industry are far more scary than the facts behind our everyday supplies of tap water.

In 2012 the UK consumed over 34 litres of bottled water per person compared to 26.9 litres in 2001. We are now consuming more bottled water than fruit juice, wine, or spirits! Europe provides the slowest growth for the bottled water industry whilst Asia and South America are slowly catching up to the leading bottled water consumer, North America.
