LIVE SUSTAINABLY. WITHOUT SACRIFICING COMFORT.
With Sanquell water filters, you can now do good not only for your body, but also for our environment.
A healthy lifestyle is now no longer just about diet and exercise. The ever-increasing awareness of sustainable lifestyles has reached all sectors and everyone can comfortably make their contribution. Whether it’s fashion, travel, or shopping, these days we can accomplish a lot for our home planet with just small changes in our everyday lives.
1,100 LITERS OF DRINKING WATER PER PERSON PER YEAR
If we assume that each person drinks 3 liters of water per day, we arrive at a drinking water requirement of just under 1,100 liters per year per person. So, for a family of four, this is 4,400 liters, which is equivalent to about 24 filled bathtubs.
With this amount of water, even small changes can help make it not only more sustainable, but also less expensive and more convenient to use on a day-to-day basis.
700 PET BOTTLES PER YEAR
EVERYONE CREATES A MOUNTAIN OF WASTE OF GIGANTIC PROPORTIONS.
In Germany, almost 45 million disposable bottles are consumed – per day!
We all know the dramatic consequences of plastic in our environment. Between Hawaii and California is the world’s largest plastic island, the Great Pacific Garbage Patch – 80,000 tons of plastic in an area the size of France. Some researchers estimate that we now indirectly consume one “Tupperware box” of microplastics per year. A pollutant that our water filters can retain, by the way.
If we were to satisfy our water consumption via tap water, we could save up to 700 plastic bottles per person.
600 TIMES LESS CO2 THAN BOTTLED DRINKING WATER
THE PROVISION OF PET BOTTLES COSTS A LOT OF ENERGY.
Take Berlin, for example: Here, the consumption of bottled mineral water generates 105,000 tons of CO2 – every year. If tap water were drunk, this would be only 175 tons. 600x less energy, 600x more sustainable.
THOUSANDS OF TRUCK KILOMETERS
Every day, trucks drive on the roads and transport bottled drinking water across the countryside. Mostly from a commercial source that produces water of gigantic quantity – with all the consequences. Even table water – consisting of enriched drinking water – has to take this route. And you, as the consumer, drive the bottles home from the beverage store in your car and then again for disposal.
100 TIMES CHEAPER THAN BOTTLED MINERAL WATER
Filtered tap water is a convenient, calorie-free thirst quencher. Clean drinking water is a human right and should be affordable by everyone. At a cost of about €0.01 per liter of drinking water, we get the cool refreshment from our tap.
You also save the cost of driving to the supermarket to buy the water. Not to mention, your water consumption will create less plastic waste and help the environment.
So if you’re looking for the cheapest, best quality water right in your own home, activated carbon water filters are the answer.
Conclusion: Drinking water from the tap avoids packaging waste, avoids transport routes, reduces Co2 emissions and also saves a lot of money and time.
