It’s time to switch from drinking from the tap and buying single-use plastic water bottles to refilling reusable containers with purified water. We’ve done our research and compiled a list of 3 reasons why refill water is better.
1. Refill water is safer than tap water
Are you concerned about the safety of your tap water?
You’re not alone. Many people have concerns about the quality of their local water supply and with good reason. Most of the water we receive in our homes is filled with pesticides, lead, and other harmful contaminants.
And yet, we continue to use it—and pay for it!
Why? Because we don’t know what else to do. We all know bottled water is expensive and wasteful, but we don’t know where else to turn.
Well, now you do! Oasis Water has over 400 stores located across South Africa, Namibia, Botswana, and Eswatini – ready to refill any bottle. It’s as convenient as disposable bottles but way safer for your health and wallet.
Fill up on-the-go and never worry about what you’re drinking again!
2. Refill water is cheaper than buying bottled water
When you buy refill water, you’re actively choosing to save money, be more sustainable, and stay hydrated.
We’ve become so accustomed to buying bottled water at the grocery store we may pay anything from R8 to R15 for a 500ml water bottle.
When calculated, if you drink two bottles every day (and many people do), then in just one week, your family has spent approximately R450 on bottled water—and that’s not including any other purchases!
It’s time to rethink your bottled water habit.
3. Refilling helps reduce plastic waste
Refill water is better for you and the environment.
It’s no secret that plastic waste is a huge problem. But there’s a solution! Refill water helps reduce plastic waste and make a difference in the world.
One single-use plastic bottle takes over 450 years to decompose – causing a lot of trash in our landfills, oceans, and waterways.
However, it’s not just the bottles themselves that are an issue. It’s also caps and labels that go into making these bottles.
Essentially, by filling up your reusable water bottle, you can help reduce your carbon footprint each time you drink water.
The bottom line
As you can see, there are many reasons to refill your water bottle instead of buying a new one. If you’re looking for a way to save money and stay hydrated, then refilling your water bottles and containers is the perfect solution.
It’s easy: bring your empty bottle or container to any one of our Oasis Water stores nationwide. We’ll fill it up! And if you don’t have a container, you can purchase one in our store.
