BOTTLED WATER CONTAMINATION: AN OVERVIEW OF NRDC'S AND OTHERS' SURVEYS:
Bottled Water Storage and Growth of Microorganisms
Bottled water often is stored at relatively warm (room) temperatures for extended periods of time, generally with no residual disinfectant contained in it. As noted in the Technical Report (print report only) and shown in Figure 8, several studies have documented that there can be substantial growth of certain bacteria in bottled mineral water during storage, with substantial increases in some cases in the levels of types such as heterotrophic-plate-count-bacteria and Pseudomonas.  Studies also have shown that even when there are relatively low levels of bacteria in water when it is bottled, after one week of storage, total bacteria counts can jump by 1,000-fold or more in mineral water.

- Light and heat can affect the plastics that can cause chemicals to leach into the water. Some plastics have been shown to negatively affect our hormones.
- Americans throw away 2.5 million plastic bottles every hour. (1)
- Worldwide each year the planet is using 30 billion throw-away bottles of water! (2)
- 8 out of 10 of those bottles end up in a landfill. (3)
- Plastic takes up to 1,000 years to degrade in a landfill. (4), (5)
- Recycling plastic takes 88% less energy than making plastic from raw materials.(5)
- Enough plastic is thrown away each year to circle the Earth four times. (5)
- Americans throw away 35 billion plastic bottles every year. (5)
- Only about 25% of the plastic produced in the U.S. is recycled. (5)
- If we recycled the other 75% we could save 1 billion gallons of oil and 44 million cubic yards of landfill space annually. (5)
- Using aluminum or glass containers is always preferable over plastic. (5)
- A plastic bottle of drinking water contains on average 4 cents worth of water. (5)
- By using reusable drink containers, an average person can eliminate the need for 100 disposable bottles per year. (5)
