    According to Time Magazine’s 2008 report, Coca Cola factories, on average, require 2.5 liters of water to produce a liter of Coca Cola product. Some manufacturing factories are more efficient than others so this 2.5:1 ratio is not solid. For example, the North American factory uses 1.71 liters of water per liter of product while the Pacific region factories use 3.23 liters of water per liter of product.

    However, Coca Cola has put forth efforts to reduce its water consumption by 20 percent by 2020.

    Some report that it takes up to 9 liters of water to produce one liter of Coke. This, of course, is a fact that the company would rather not share. While 1/3 of the water is used to make the actual product, 2/3 of the water is used to clean the equipment and bottles needed to produce. An unworldly amount of water is wasted by this company annually.
