On average, bottled Gatorade sells for $5 - $6 per gallon, depending on promotions and the size of bottles purchased. But when you purchase Gatorade in powder form and add your own water, your cost per gallon is as little as $1.45. A potential savings of more than 75%!
How can this be? Simple: It costs money to bottle and ship water. As can be seen in the following infographic, Gatorade powder mix weighs 94% less than the same amount of ready-to-drink product. And of course, there’s no need for bottles and caps.
But here's how it gets even better. When Gatorade is purchased in powder form there are fewer trucks distributing water in plastic containers. Which means less fuel consumed, less plastic produced and less carbon emitted.

(Note: 32oz bottles of Gatorade typically sell in grocery and discount stores for between $1.25 and $1.50 per bottle, which equates to $5 to $6 per gallon. Actual savings can be even greater when 12oz and 20oz bottles are used for comparison.
Due to their convenience, bottled drinks will always be a popular and practical choice in many instances. All Gatorade containers are made from recyclable materials and can even be reused when making drinks from concentrate.)
