The cost of living crisis is having a noticeable effect on our shopping bills! Everyday essentials have increased in price by up to 65% and that includes the cost of bottled water. We are all looking for ways to cut costs and save our hard-earned cash.
According to consumer review site ‘Which?’ the price of still bottled water increased by 18.6% in 2022.
Buying a supermarket brand of bottled water can cost the average 4-person family approximately £1460 per year, if they drink the recommended 8 glasses per day each.
On average in 2018, around 44.9 litres of bottled water were consumed per person in the United Kingdom.
Statistics show that the average person in the UK will spend £25,000 on bottled water and similar drinks in their lifetime.
The bottled water market is worth an estimated £1.2 billion in the UK in 2023. However, whilst the bottled water industry is taking advantage of the average Brit’s spending habits, over half of consumers now have a reusable water bottle with 36% using it regularly. So, instead of spending your hard-earned cash on single-use bottles of water, following a more sustainable and cost effective route can help you save on your shopping bills.
How can I save money?
With other supermarket items also increasing in price, it makes sense to cut costs where you can. Unfortunately we can’t help you out with the rest of your everyday essentials. However, we can help you cross bottled water off your shopping list.
A water filter is a super solution to replacing your need for bottled water. The good news is that you won’t have to compromise on quality, safety and taste too. This means that you’ll be switching the lifelong, on-going costs of bottled water for a one off cost of a single point of use filter (if you are on a budget) or a whole house water filter system. Take a look at our water filter solutions and save on your next shopping bill.
