Bottled Water vs Tap Water
Bottled drinking water is the bane of modern society. A study comparing bottled water with tap water for quality, taste, and cost, found that bottled water lost to tap water in each case.
People think that bottled water is pure and safe for drinking. Experts say nothing is further from the truth. The success of bottled water owes itself to the concept called “Manufactured Demand”. Some enterprising opportunists wanted to make huge sums of money selling water and the only way they could do that was by promoting bottled water as a safer alternative to tap water.
The good folks at StoryOfStuff.org has put together an interesting video which explains the “Story of Bottled Water” , that should be a real eye opener for all of us.
The good news is the bottled water sales have started to plummet as of 2010. This is owing to the increasing awareness among people on the environmental disaster that bottled water industry poses to this world.
My suggestion is buy a good water purifier and start using tap water for drinking and cooking purpose.
My family has done just that. In the past one year we have been drinking tap water and have suffered no side effects at all. Ever since we bought an Aquasure water purifier, we have even stopped boiling the water before drinking thus saving on energy costs.
