Why Urban Well Drinking Fountain Filtration Systems

Water Conservation

  • Reduces the amount of water wasted in plastic water bottle manufacturing

    • Each plastic bottle takes 3-4 times more water to make the bottle than to fill the bottle itself

Saves Money

  • Tap water is 240 to 10,000 times more economical than bottled water. Bottled water is nearly 3 times as expensive as oil.
  • If tap water in our pipes at home cost as much as the cheapest bottled water, our monthly water bill would still be approximately $9,000.00 / month

Saves The Environment

  • By using Urban Well filtered drinking fountains, it reduces the need for water bottles and helps to preserve the environment, as most water bottles are not recycled. Almost 20% of them are recycled nationwide, and it can only go through the recycling process once.
  • Prevents water bottle waste, as 38 billion water bottles are dumped into landfills each year
  • Oil conservation:

    • As 1.5 million barrels of oil are used each year to manufacture water bottles, the lack of plastic water bottle production will conserve oi
    • If water bottle manufacturing is not necessary, then there will be no fuel cost and fuel usage to transport these bottles

Health Benefits

  • Using water purification systems on drinking fountains will eliminate the risk of toxins leaching from plastic bottles into your water

    • These toxins include Bisphenol-A and Phalates, which are endocrine disruptors, carcinogenic, also damaging to reproductive systems and brain development

Benefits Our Oceans

  • Prevents the collection of floating bottles in the middle of the ocean, as it resembles prey to ocean life such as turtles, fishes, dolphins, marine birds, etc. These animals eat it by mistake and often die. They also get trapped and bound by plastic, which results in injury or death.
