Drink It Up!

Memphis water is delicious, plentiful, and inexpensive. It’s also available at every home and business in town. The next time you purchase a bottle of water rather than fill your own container from the tap consider this:

1) Eight out of ten plastic water bottles used in the United States become garbage or end up in a landfill.

2) The energy wasted producing bottled water would be enough to power 190,000 homes.

3) Making all of the bottles used in the US requires more than 1.5 million barrels of oil annually. (That's enough to fuel 100,000 cars.)

Bottled water is neither purer nor safer than tap water in most communities. In fact, many of the leading bottled water brands are sourced from municipal tap water in other cities who’s water may or may not be as good as ours.

So, save your money and maybe even the earth by drinking Memphis’ pure and tasty tap water.
