Italy has rich water resources and the lowest water prices in Europe, but the country is still Europe’s number one and world-wide number two regarding mineral water consumption. Although countless analyses in 2010 have shown that the limits as per D.Lgs 31/2001 have been met nearly everywhere with 99.8, tap water has a bad reputation.

Therefore, every Italian family spends 234 Euros per year for bottled water according to the study Censis 2014. The savings and environmental protection potential hiding behind this is much higher since 12 billion litres of mineral water have been bottled in PET bottles in 2006 already. This has caused a consumption of 665,000 tons of oil what corresponds to a CO2 equivalent of 910,000 tons of greenhouse gas emissions. 248,000 tons of PET bottles ended up in residual waste since only 1/3 of the bottles have been recycled.
