Recycling is not a foreign word in Switzerland and we emphasize the recycling of materials. Some sources state that Swiss are world champions in recycling. It remains to be seen, but clearly we collect and separate glas, alu, PET etc.

With PET-bottles the rubbish amounted in 2015 to 38’661 tons and 83% of them were recycled. A remarkable result.

Buuuuttt…. Insted of even using plastic, why not be more sustainable bevor? Would Swiss people renounce PET-bottles and drink only tab water, it would be possible to save 333’000 liters of petroleum per day!

Therefore, I had the chance to do the experiment with Soda Stream and see how many plastic bottles are going to be collected over the arch of one month. You won’t believe me, but my usual  „recyclingbag“ was by far not enough and a huge pile of PET-bottles was accumulated (and this even though I thought to be a diligent tea drinker…)

There are a few important aspects that we should consider tab water instead of bottled sparkling water!

Tab water is more environmentally friendly than mineral water

clearly it is more environmentally friendly, if we drink the water directly from the tab. Who still prefers mineral water should consider to fizz the tab water, because it pollutes the environment 10x less than bottled mineral water. This is for the reason that the transport route of the PET bottles is omitted and furthermore the for the tab water there is no extra packaging and filling into the beverage packaging necessary.

Fizzing tab water is climate-friendly and saves the carrying

According to different studies, the sparkling tab water (fizzled at home) causes 90% less greenhouse gases than shop bought mineral water in PET bottles. And imagine all the heavy carrying of bottles… With the SodaStream machine that can be omitted and it is super easy to fizzy the tab water according to your own taste.

Even though, we (Swiss) claim us world champion in recycling, we should think about our consumption in future. It won’t get any better without counteraction, because the plastic consumption is increasing rapidly! That’s why we should do something today, instead of consuming thoughtlessly.

And for all fizzy drinks-lover: Better go SodaStream today than tomorrow 😉

How is it with you? Do you love sparkling water or do you drink only tab water? Or are you already a proud owner of a SodaStream machine?

This article has been created in friendly collaboration with SodaStream but everything stated is what I truly believe in and I feel everybody should consider the topic 🙂
