This article originally appeared in print under the headline “Which one is better?” article New Scientist magazine has put out an exclusive poll asking readers to pick the best water bottle to use for your water, the Buckey.
And while the water bottles on offer range from £14.99 for the most basic to £49.99 in higher-end versions, they all share a common characteristic: they’re cheap.
In fact, they’re so cheap they’ve already cost over £500,000 to manufacture, according to New Scientist.
What do they all have in common?
They’re all made by the same company: Coca-Cola.
That company is the largest producer of bottled water in the world.
The world’s largest bottler of bottled waters is also the world’s biggest manufacturer of bottled petrol, with a market value of over £9bn, according the World Bank.
So why all the fuss about the price?
Because they’re made from a single material, and it’s made by one company, Coca-cola.
As well as the obvious advantages, there are a number of trade-offs to consider when choosing the best.
The first is that the cost of the material has a huge impact on its effectiveness.
As New Scientist puts it: “When the cost to produce one ton of aluminium goes from £1,200 to £10,000, the effect on efficiency is significant.
That carbon dioxide costs about £30 per tonne, but if you’re making a bottle of Coke, that cost could be as little as £1. “
But as a point of reference, the most expensive material in the water industry is carbon dioxide, the gas that causes global warming.”
That carbon dioxide costs about £30 per tonne, but if you’re making a bottle of Coke, that cost could be as little as £1.
“The second is that, in order to be a viable business, a company needs to have the right mix of technologies and processes, to ensure that they can be developed and scaled up,” says Michael Lofgren, a water expert at the UK’s University of Southampton.
“A single, well-funded company can afford to have a single technology, and the right people, in a single space.”
So while the bottle is more expensive, it’s not quite as cheap as the petrol or petrol-powered vehicle that it’s replacing.
And that’s where Coca-Cola comes in.
“It’s been around for more than 40 years, and its not the first water bottle,” says Lofberg.
“They’ve been around since the mid-20th century.”
Coca-Lobster is one of the most successful bottlers of water in world, producing over 3,000 different types of water, according Guinness World Records.
In its heyday, it produced more than 2.3 billion litres of water per day.
And it also sells a range of other water products.
Coca-Mountain, a brand that is also owned by Coca- Cola, is a premium water bottle.
And Coca-Coke is another water brand that has been around the world for decades.
Coca Cola also has its own bottled water brands, including Pepsi, Mountain Dew and Tropicana.
Its most popular bottled water is called Coca-Pepsi.
The brand also has a water filter, which can be purchased at almost any grocery store.
And its own brand of water filters are also available.
It’s not just Coca-Water that has become a key supplier of water to the UK.
The company has a network of 50 water treatment plants across the UK, which supplies about 50% of the UK water supply.
These are the same plants that are used to treat waste water, to filter out any harmful chemicals that are emitted by industrial processes.
Coca has also been involved in the production of a number water purification products, including Coca-Sol and Coca-Pot, which are sold in grocery stores.
The drinks Coca-Mix, sold in supermarkets, is made from the same water purifying process as Coca-Gatorade.
The Coke water that’s sold in most supermarkets is also bottled water.
And some supermarkets are now selling bottled water as a convenience item.
As the water wars have raged, so has the price of bottled drink.
As a result, the number of people who use bottled water has fallen.
But it’s still more than twice as expensive as it was 10 years ago.
So if you don’t like water, you might consider a water bottle for a change.
And if you can’t decide between a bottle and a water purifier, you can always go for a glass of tap water.
