Plastikverbrauch in Deutschland

So viele Einweg-Mineralwasserflaschen werfen Deutsche pro Jahr weg
(English version below.)

Jeder Deutsche trinkt im Schnitt rund 148 Liter Mineralwasser pro Jahr. Davon wird allein die Hälfte aus Einweg-Plastikflaschen konsumiert, die anschließend weggeworfen werden. So werden in Deutschland allein durch den Verbrauch von Mineralwasserflaschen über 91.000 Tonnen Plastikmüll im Jahr produziert. Das ist das Ergebnis unserer Untersuchung des jährlichen Plastikverbrauchs durch Konsum von Mineralwasser in Deutschland.

Die Ergebnisse der Untersuchung sind in folgender Infografik zusammengefasst.

(In English)

A German drinks an average of about 148 liters of mineral water per year. Half of it is consumed from disposable plastic bottles, which are then thrown away. In Germany, the consumption of disposable mineral water bottles alone produces more than 91,000 tonnes of plastic waste per year. This was the result of a study of annual plastic wastage due to mineral water consumption in Germany.

The results of the study are summarized in the following infographic.
