Switching to bottled water saves the equivalent of 87 cheeseburgers a year
June 7, 2016
The tremendous rise in U.S. bottled water consumption has resulted in significant caloric savings, according to a new study from the Beverage Marketing Corporation (BMC), New York. As Americans increasingly have opted for calorie-free bottled water instead of other beverages, they have collectively cut 61 to 68 trillion calories during the past 15 years (2000-2015), the market research firm reports.
Bottled water has come a long way in its lifetime, and today, consumers are choosing this natural, healthy beverage more than ever. Industry experts even speculate that the category could grow larger than the carbonated soft drink (CSD) category by the end of the decade.
