i think everyone needs to give up bottled water. i got a bobble water bottle a few months ago, and i’ve been using it since. i have still bought bottled water since then, as a convenience factor, but i will now put in the extra effort to eliminate bottled water usage by myself entirely.

People are dumb, of course bottled water is pure bs. I don’t see how anyone could believe anything else. If the media, advertising or government said crack was healthy or classy, you can be damn sure the masses would be smoking crack all day and then wonder what their poor health stems from. Gullible fools.

Bottled water is just one of those little tricks to get people to give you lots of their money in exchange for nothing (other than a plastic bottle which cost nearly nothing to produce.) There are millions of these tricks, most people are falling for them all the time without ever questioning. It’s weak, lazy and dumb.

oh yes….and it goes way farther and deeper than that article got into. our oceans are being polluted at unbelievable rates, people getting cancer, PETE plastic is the devil…..there is a very good documentary on this topic called “tapped”, it is on netflix, if you happen to use netflix. actually netflix is full of good documentaries. one day i spent like twelve hrs on a docu-binge, and at the finish i came to the conclusion i would not eat meat anymore. havent touched it since, and became vegetarian (well actually pescatarian). ha. now my motto with food and water is pretty much this-if it didnt exist as a food a hundred years ago, then it is most likely garbage. my only weakness with that is pizza with black olives. now im off topic. anyways- bottled water=cancer…..

Yeah I’ve never bought bottled water unless it was the only option for water. It has never made sense to me and this article further proves that.

It’s crazy to think how much really don’t care about things if it makes it easier for us to turn our heads the other way. Not sure what to do about this, how can we make a difference?

I personally drink bottled water because the tap water here taste like crud after a recent natural disaster. I suppose I should invest in a filter :/

I’ve never really liked bottled water. There was always something about it that didn’t taste quite right and after seeing all these articles about how its mainly tap water my opinion has been verified.

Of course I don’t really like drinking tap water either simply because its controlled by a governmental agency in one way or another where they could put any chemical they want into it. I used to have a water filter for my sink until I came across distilled water and now I can drink nothing else…Though right now the only way I can get it is in gallon jugs…which is still just as bad for its use of plastic. Anyway eventually I would like a reverse osmosis machine so i can make my own distilled water.

my question is if you fill up an empty bottle with tap water are there still leftover chemicals in the bottle?

get a tap filter…or if you are gonna buy water from a store get distilled water. It’s as pure as you’re gonna get and it tastes amazing.

I’ve got a 11-litre bottle that I fill up a couple times a week at the store, costs $1.79. I’m happy to do so to get good drinking water; water from the tap is full of crap and doesn’t taste too good. One of the more important things that filters don’t fix is the pH level of the water. It’s important to keep that balanced.

What I personally understood about distilled water is that it is dead water and though it hydrates better it also has a detox effect that tends to wash out vitamins from the body more, so it doesn’t sound like a always-forever-drink solution. (Am I wrong here?) Also, not all bottled waters contain fluoride which is found in tap where I live and won’t be filtered out easily. Not to mention tap gets “cleaned” with chlorine pretty often. As in, I get out of shower and frantically itch my skin for the next few hours. I’d rather get a jug of plastic for half the times and the other half I’m going to be drinking filtered tap.(Also, am I wrong here?) When I have the sources to invest in legit filtration, I’m definitely battling this “sale! Bottled water 24pk for $soandso.99″ herding.

I have worked in the water industry for years in both waste and drinking water. I can tell you places where you don’t want to drink the water (China) and places where the tap water is better than any bottled water (Rocky mountains or really any mountainous area where snow run off is the initial product).

Bottom line is that tap water is monitored by the EPA and bottled water by the FDA. The two have different criteria that manufacturers need to meet. So they are not the same end product. Both industries need to remain in compliance which is the key to controlling the end product. Neither will hurt us here in the U.S. We have good control and compliance even if different.

In our world of over consumerism, marketing is key to creating a demand. Remember that our municipalities don’t advertise and are price restricted by government control. Whereas private companies are in it to make money by creating a demand.

So if you can get water from the tap instead of buying something because of advertising and marketing with profit as the desired outcome AND it does not consume and send to landfill a plastic product, why not use it?

watch the documentary tapped! it’s been about a year since I have drank from plastic water bottles and I try hard not to buy them but sometimes it is unavoidable.

I’d consider myself a little bit of an advocate for stopping the production of plastic water bottles.. I can’t stand to see peoole in their own homes too lazy to fill up a glass so they grab a plastic bottle, drink half of it then throw it away the next day because it’s old. what a waste!!

seriously though, watched the documentary called tapped, it’s excellent
