|Good News! The Soda Companies are Going Down |
the first time in 20 years, the amount of soda sold in the United States has dropped.
Sales of cases of soda went down 0.7 percent, to just over 10 billion cases. Coca-Cola Classic sales declined by 2 percent, and original Pepsi sales decreased by 3.2 percent.
OK, so it might not be for 132 years at this rate, but, it is finally happening.
Soft drinks are still the most consumed beverage in America, but they are losing ground to bottled water, sports drinks, and energy drinks.
And why drinking water is so important.
