Reduction of Workplace Bottled Water Consumption

This presentation focuses on an effort to reduce workplace bottled water consumption.  It offers several arguments against bottled water consumption including the following:  Waste Associated with Bottled Water Consumption, Exposure to Plastics associated with Bottled Water Consumption, Reduced Quality of Bottled Water compared to Local Tap Water, Inferior Regulation of Bottled Water compared to Tap Water, and the Expense of Bottled Water compared to Tap Water.  This presentation is directed to employees of a business that has decided to stop providing bottled water.

  1. Hi Krista,

    Thank you for your informative presentation on the issues associated with bottled water, including production, transportation, consumption and disposal. The statistics are shocking, and the average consumer is probably unaware of the downside of what would appear to be an innocent behavior. As Public Health Professionals, we will need to solve issues such as these in order to promote population health as well as protect the environment.

    Thank you for breaking the barrier for the rest of us on being the first to post your document on the Environmental News Website.

    On the serious side, your document about water bottles is very informative and eye-opening relative to the amount of plastics that are disposed as solid waste instead of recycling.

    Yesterday, I watched a TV documentary where the CEO of Waste Management CO (WM) in Atlanta, disguised as an undercover new employee of the company visited several sites and discovered, some improprieties as well as dedicated but underpaid workers. Having seen the operation from grounds up, he went back and made several adjustments in the company including efficient waste recovery and recycling techniques. Thanks
