Help reduce your carbon footprint with home water filter systems. Carbon footprints – What kind of carbon footprint do you think is created or generated by the bottled water industry? Let’s take for example what it takes to bottle water in Fuji, fly it 2000 miles so you can buy it off a shelf in the United States. That’s energy to make the plastic bottles, fill them and package them. There’s a lot of fuel being burnt there too whether they are shipped by boat or air. Etc.
