    Tap vs Bottled Water Tap vs Bottled Water Presentation Transcript

    • What you are about to discover may surprise you!
      If you don’t believe it; do your own research.
      There is plenty of information about this topic on the Internet.
    • …that don’t know that truth about bottled water.
      Don’t be a fool. Learn the truth.
    • What are the main concerns when comparing bottled water to filtered fountain water?
      Taste
      Safety
      Myth vs. Truth
      Cost
      Environment
      Others?
    • Taste
      Myth
      Bottled water taste better
      Truth
      When people are put in a blind taste test many can’t tell the difference and usually more people prefer the taste of tap water.
      If you don’t believe me, try it yourself.
    • ISB Blind Taste Test
      We tested ISB students.
      Students had to choose which water tasted better: A or B.
      They didn’t know which was bottled water and which was ISB fountain water (filtered).
    • Safety
      Truth
      Myth
      Some bottled water contains:
      bacterial contaminants
      industrial solvents
      chemicals from plastic (BPA)
      arsenic, a known carcinogen (cancer causing).
      Bottled water is MUCH less regulated for safety than tap water.
      Remember bottled water is made for profit; not safety.
      Bottled water is safer and healthier than tap water.

    • True or False
      All bottled water comes from clean pristine rivers that flow down mountains.
    • False
      40% of bottled water is actually tap water.
      Desani (from Coca Cola) Aquafina (from Pepsi)
      Both are tap water!!
    • What about our water?
      ISB sells Crystal water.
      We called Crystal & asked a few questions.
      They use filtered tap water.
      That’s right, it is the same as ISB water, but you paid for the pretty bottle.
      So the bottle itself must be a good thing right?
    • WRONG!!!
      The container (bottles) that we store the water in is actually not safe for us.
      Bisphenol A (BPA), found in many plastic bottles and water coolers contains estrogens.
      Estrogens are female hormones and has been linked to breast and ovarian cancers and childhood developmental problems.
      Phthalates, which are known to disrupt testosterone and other hormones, can leach into bottled water over time.
      ISB reusable bottles are BPA & Phthalates free.
    • Environment:a nightmare from beginning to end
      Bottled water causes over 60 million plastic bottles to be produced, filled, transported and disposed of "every day" in America. That’s just in USA.
      Less than 20% of bottles get recycled.
      It takes 3 times as much water to produce the bottle as it does to fill it.
    • Oil is used to make it & ship it. Most bottles never get recycled.
      Plastic takes over 300 years to degrade in nature.
      Plastic was invented 140 years ago and it is all still here, piling up in our landfills, oceans and communities.
    • Cost
      1 Crystal each day
      For the year =
      3660 baht
      1 ISB bottle =
      350 baht
      183 school days / year
      20 baht/Crystal bottle
      20 x 183 = 3660
    • Tap (filtered) vs. Bottle
      Myth
      The price is worth it
      Truth
      It’s not safer
      Not cleaner
      Has a gigantic negative environmental impact
      And doesn’t taste better.
      Yet, people spend about 500 times more for bottled water than they typically do for tap water.
    • Water changes at ISB
      2 new water dispensers at the gym and cafeteria for you to refill your own water bottle.
      Bookstore sells water bag & bottles for 350 baht.
      BPA FREE
      Crystal water will double from 10 baht to 20 baht.
      Remember the fountain water is the same water, but free!
    • Don’t be a fool…
      Do it for your taste buds,
      Do it for your health,
      Do it for your planet,
      Do it for your wallet…
      Say no to bottled water.
      Get a BPA free refillable bottle or bag
