  1. Thank you for sharing this pie graph. This is very informative. I believe that people in asia should have awareness about the effect of consumption of bottled water.I hope that asians would be able to reduce their bottled water consumption soon and try to have water filter or have a reusable water bottle instead for the environment sake and health too.
