WASHINGTON, June 30, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Following is the daily "Profile America" feature from the U.S. Census Bureau:
JUNE 30: FLUID SITUATION
Profile America — Friday, June 30th. In the past, hot summer days meant that some enterprising youngsters in the neighborhood would set up a lemonade stand or the family would share a pitcher of iced tea on the front porch to cool off. In recent times, we've pretty much retreated indoors to slake our thirst year-round. The drink of choice is often a soft drink, usually carbonated. As a result, fizzy soft drink manufacturing is a $38.6 billion a year business. Bottled water has surged in popularity in recent decades, although there lately has been some pushback over the environmental threat posed by so many empty plastic bottles. The 295 water-bottling establishments in the nation ship more than $5.5 billion worth of product annually. You can find more facts about America from the U.S. Census Bureau online at www.census.gov.
