英语新闻:说说比油贵的矿泉水

For a bottle of water, it looks pretty stylish.
对一瓶水来说,它看起来很时髦。
 
But at 1.88 pound a litre, Evian Drop costs more than petrol or beer.

每升1.88英镑,依云比油或者啤酒还要昂贵。
 
However, the smart bottles contain exactly the same Evian mineral water that has been on supermarket shelves for decades at less than half the price.
然而,这个小巧的瓶子恰好装着超市架子上一样的依云矿物质水,但是超市里依云水的价格只有一半。
 
Not only that, the French-designed containers are a one-use product with a tear-off lid.The 20cl (200ml) plastic bottles are promoted as the equivalent of a glass of water – enough to quench a thirst while being small enough to fit in a handbag.
除此以外,这个法式设计的容器是有揭口盖的一次性产品。这个200毫升的塑料瓶和一杯水的容量相等,足以解渴,同时可以小到放入手提包。
 
They are on offer online at Ocado at 9 pound for a box of 24 small 20cl bottles – which works out at 1.88 pound a litre.

它们在线上Ocado里销售,每箱售价9英镑,内装24个200毫升的小瓶子,每升1.88英镑。
 
However, if the pack is sold at the normal price of 12 pound, it goes up to 2.50 pound a litre.This is more than three times more than the same Evian water, which is sold in a 24 pack of standard 50cl bottles.

然而,如果每包以12英镑的正常售价出售,每升价格高达2.5英镑。这比同样的依云水价格贵三倍,正常依云水每包有24个500毫升的标准瓶子。
 
These are 70.8p a litre – meaning a 165 per cent mark-up on Drop water.
这些水每公升70.8便士,这意味着该产品的价格上涨了165%。
 
And while the mini bottles have won plaudits at the packaging design competition, the Pentawards, many are sceptical.
尽管这些迷你瓶在包装设计节 the Pentawards上赢得了赞誉,很多人对此表示怀疑。
 
Fred Isaac, of consumer website A Spokesman Said, commented: ‘At pound1.88 a pop this water should be able to reverse the ageing process. Consumers should shop around.’Evian said: ‘This bottle is a quick, light solution to instantly quench a consumer’s thirst while on the move.’
消费者网页的一名发言人Fred Isaac评论道:“这款售价1.88英镑的汽水应该能够抗衰老。消费者应该到处购买。”Evian说:“这瓶水是为行动中的消费者解决燃眉之急的快速、简洁的方式。”
