But what is wrong with bottled water?
Sales and Consumption of Bottled Water
Sales of bottled water in its numerous forms have increased dramatically. Britain’s £2bn thirst for bottled water has been described as “one of the greatest cons of the 20th century” and as “marketing’s answer to the emperor’s new clothes” not to mention being described as “environmental insanity”. Over 2 billion litres of bottled water are sold in Britain every year and sales are growing at nearly 9 percent a year. Think of all that plastic!
At an average of 95p per litre, bottled water costs nearly as much as petrol, while the average cost of mains tap water in Britain is £1 per 1,0000 litres.
Environmental and Social Impact of Bottled Water
Bottled water has also come under criticism in recent years for the environmental impacts of groundwater extraction, the energy and environmental costs of the plastic packaging and transportation costs, and concerns about water quality and the validity of some marketing claims.
One criticism of bottled water concerns the packaging. Bottled water commonly is packaged in Polyethylene terephthalate (PET), which requires a significant amount of energy to produce. There are also significant issues with the many billions of tons of plastic and glass bottle waste, filling up our landfill sites at a record rates and not being fully recycled.
The shipping and bottling of water has been creating thousands of tons of global warming pollution and other air pollution. Arrrrrrr!
But what about waste from the water filters?
The filters from the system at the shop are mostly compostable.
Any filter that has granular media (such as carbon, KDF, active ceramic) can be emptied out or broken up and used for soil drainage and compost. Plastic components of those filters can be put into plastic recycling. But it does depend on the filter. All plastic encapsulated filters, including those for the Osmio Zero and D7 can be put into plastics recycling. Best to ask when buying your system.
Q: How do I know what type of system I need?
A: Choosing a filtration system to suit your needs might be overwhelming. If you need some extra advice go to www.osmiowater.co.uk

Osmio EZFITPRO-300 Undersink Water Filter Kit 15mm Push Fit
This is the top of the range installed inline system for an existing cold tap. It uses a 0.2 micron ceramic filter and a limescale and heavy metal filter to achieve a thorough reduction of bacteria, chlorine, heavy metals and more. It reduces pressure and flow rate of your water to tap, so it is not recommended if you have very poor flow/low pressure. Slower flow means better water so it is good to live with that!
There are two filters in the system, which both serve a different purpose with the ultimate result being purified, clean, healthy and great tasting water for all your drinking, cooking, washing and cleaning needs.
