2. BOTTLED WATER – DO WE NEED IT?
3. The Impact on Our Environment
According to a 2001 report of the World Wide
Fund for Nature (WWF), roughly 1.5 million
tons of plastic are expended in the bottling of
89 billion liters of water each year.
Statistics Canada says nearly one-third
of all Canadian households are
choosing bottled water over tap water,
and the data indicate those numbers
are still on the rise; plus 40% to 80% of
empty bottles end up as solid waste.
4. The Impact on Your Health
A study published in September 2008, examined BPA exposure in
humans. The study, which included 1,455 American adults, found
that 90% of participants had detectable levels of BPA in their urine.
Researchers said those with the highest levels of BPA
concentrations in their urine had nearly three times the odds of
cardiovascular disease, compared with participants with the lowest
levels of BPA. The study also found people with high BPA levels
had 2.4 times the odds of Type 2 diabetes in comparison with those
with the lowest levels.
Some forms of filtration and reverse osmosis systems can
be problematic as well in that they strip water of minerals,
essentially creating distilled (or dead) water, which can over
periods of prolonged use have the effect of actually
removing essential minerals from the body.
Water is the most essential nutrient – humans, animals and
plants can not live without it. Therefore, it is important to
ensure the water you consume and use has a high level of

5. The Impact on Your Money....
According to the Polaris Institute - One billion
bottles of water are consumed by Canadians every
year. It takes three litres of water for the production
of a single plastic bottle, which contains an average
of one litre of water.
One billion bottles at an average cost of $1.50 totals
15 BILLION DOLLARS
6. Five Reasons to Avoid Bottled Water
1. Bottled water leads to water shortages
In Canada, we are not immune to the growing threats of water scarcity20% of municipalities have
faced shortages in recent years. According to Maude Barlow, Canada is a net exporter of bottled
water, selling its ancient glacier waters all over the world mostly for the profit of the foreign-owned,
big four water companies. ―Most provinces charge these companies next to nothing to extract this
water from springs and aquifers, and whole watersheds are now under threat from this practice,‖
7. 2. Bottled water contributes to climate change
In an era when the world is dealing with the impacts of climate change, the bottled water industry
requires massive amounts of fossil fuels to manufacture. According to the Bow River Keeper, a
citizens’ group aimed at protecting the Bow River watershed, a quarter of the 89 billion litres of
bottled water consumed every year is consumed outside the country of its origin. Hence the
transportation of bottled water also produces large amounts of greenhouse gas emissions. The
Bow River Keeper estimates that ―the manufacturing and transport of one kilogram bottle of Fiji
water consumes 26.88 kilograms of water (7.1 gallons) 0.849 Kilograms of fossil fuel (one litre or
0.26 gal) and emits 562 grams of greenhouse gases (1.2 pounds).‖
8. 3. Our landfills cannot support bottled water
Canadian municipalities are dealing with a waste management crisis and our landfills
cannot support the amount of garbage generated by the bottled water industry.
According to a recent Toronto Sun article, ―as few as 50 percent of the water bottles
Torontonians consume everyday are actually being recycled. That means as many as 65
million empty plastic water bottles per year end up as garbage in a landfill waste
site.‖ In some communities the percentage of bottled water ending up in landfills can
be as high as 80 percent.
9. 4. Bottled water is not safer
In order to persuade people to spend 200 – 3000 times what they spend on tap water,
bottled water companies advertise their product as a safer and healthier alternative.
Nothing can be further from the truth. Bottled water is regulated as a food product under
the Canadian Food Inspection Agency. As such, according to the Polaris Institute, water
bottling plants are inspected on average only once every three years. Regulation of tap
water on the other hand, is far more stringent. In general, municipal tap water is tested
continuously during and after treatment.
10. 5. Water is a human right
The bottled water industry has worked hard to undermine our faith in public water.
Canada has one of the best public drinking water systems in the world. The Council of
Canadians has focused its efforts on fighting for a national water policy that would
improve the public system and ensure clean drinking water standards for all
communities across the country because we believe water is a human right and should
be guaranteed to all people regardless of their ability to pay. We hope the wonderful
efforts to ban bottled water in schools across the country will also be coupled with
educating children to address the global water crisis by caring for and promoting water
as a public resource and a human right.

Features several levels of filtration to reduce contaminants the natural way,
without adding chemicals. PiMag water tastes better than the commercially
bottled variety — and costs a fraction of the price.
PiMag water offers more.
Decades ago, scientists discovered that the water in a remote area of Japan
produced amazing results on the surrounding plants. They named it pi water.
Nikken has succeeded in replicating the environment that created pi water
in nature, and these discoveries are incorporated in PiMag products.
You will taste and feel the difference!
