    water stacks up you can visit the EWG report card Hopefully your brand didn t earn itself a place on the EWG Shelf of Shame The only A went to filtered tap water If you are drinking bottled water because you think it s better than tap water think again Unlike bottled water tap water quality is strictly regulated Consumers have access to reports about their water s source testing protocol and test results If you want to drink the best tasting healthiest cheapest and most carbon conscious drink fill your reusable stainless steel water bottle with your own tap water filtered if you like Category bottled water stainless steel water bottles tap water Read More Comment 1 Posted by admin January 11th 2011 Tags bottled water stainless steel bottles stainless steel water bottles steel water bottle tap water How many 5 gallon coolers does it take to replace 8 cases of bottled water This week I got an email asking parents to donate food and bottled water for the high school marching band tailgate party at the state championships I jumped in and said no need for bottled water I ll bring tap water in coolers for everyone Back 2 Tap has one 5 gallon cooler but I realized that would not be enough I was impressed to learn that the marching band has two of their own that I could borrow But then my mellophone playing son did the math If they were planning on 8 cases of bottled water for 100 people nearly 2 per person that s 8 x 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
