A blog brought to you by Macb!

If there’s one thing we know a lot about here at Macb, it’s water! We’ve pulled together some of our top water facts and figures – have fun learning about one of our favourite things!

  1. Did you know that the human body is mostly made up of water? It sounds weird but it’s true – grown-ups are around 55 – 60% water (children are about 65% water).
  2. This will make you think – a human brain is 80% water.
  3. Around 71% of the earth’s surface is water – that’s a lot of places to paddle!
  4. In 2021 the amount of Macb water sold added up to the equivalent weight of more than 56 blue whales. That’s a lot of water!
  5. Water isn’t just refreshing, it’s essential – every living thing on the planet needs it to survive.
  6. Staying hydrated by drinking enough water will help you concentrate, can stop you getting a headache and help make you feel less tired.
  7. Doctors and scientists say that you should try to drink at least one and a half litres of water every day.
  8. In the last five years, we sold enough Macb flavoured water to fill 20 Olympic size swimming pools (that would be one refreshingly fruity swimming lesson!).
  9. A five-minute shower uses about 45 litres of water (that’s 90 bottles of Macb!).
  10. Last year, a bottle of Macb was sold every two seconds (that’s 30 bottles a minute!
