Canada water pure
The Montreal Gazette recently contained some useful facts about bottled water in Canada:
- 91% of bottled water consumers in Quebec drink tap water too. They have tap water at home and bottled water on the go.
- Over 90% of Canada’s bottled water is from deep springs rather than municipal water.
- The average bottle travels 250 kilometres from source to shelf, compared to over 2,400 kilometres for fresh fruit and vegetables or most packaged consumer goods.
- 70% of plastic beverage containers in Quebec are recycled.
