  • How many 5 gallon coolers does it take to replace 8 cases of bottled water? | Back2Tap
    24 bottles case x 17 oz bottle or 3264 oz of water That s 25 gallons Woops better borrow another cooler in order to have at least have 20 gallons I figured that would be enough since people would be filling their cups with the exact amount they wanted and there wouldn t be any waste like with bottled water In fact I expected there would be a lot leftover but because we had a warm 70 degree day in late October notice the shorts we drank nearly all 20 gallons So if you want to reduce your use of disposable plastic at parties or on the road I d go with a conversion rate of one 5 gallon cooler of tap water to replace 2 cases of bottled water In addition to reducing waste we also saved money serving tap water out of coolers Including a bag of ice for each cooler and cups I spent 22 Eight cases of bottled water would have cost around 32 I spurged and added gatorade mix 8 00 to one of the 5 gallon coolers An equivalent number of individually packaged servings of gatorade would have cost around 52 Using the mix was a huge savings and they loved it Now if only I could get everyone to recycle the cups For more ideas about going bottle free visit our Bottle Free Events page Category bottle free events bottled water Read More Comments 3 Posted by admin October 25th 2010 Tags bottle free events bottled water tap water Comments 3 Theressa Lamping says January 28 2011 at 4 00 am It is good I required photos to add in my school project plus the pictures you have posted are great Thanks for them mate I guess teacher will really enjoy my task
