If you believe the advertisements you see, bottled water is the purest form of water. It comes from a mountain stream or from some remote, untouched corner of the world. While some bottled water does come from springs, much of it comes from municipal water supplies. It is often bottled tap water that has been filtered and treated. Some companies will even add minerals that they hope will improve the taste.
Plastic bottles in reality are terrible for the environment and for you
There are many things that are downright scary about plastic bottles. First, the plastic is usually made from fossil fuels. They take a lot of energy to create and then remain in the environment for at least 450 years! Bottles made with Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET or PETE) will never biodegrade. There are many different reports about how plastic can get into your soil, water and body. The chemicals in these bottles can cause long term health issues.
Plastic bottles are expensive!
There are many studies on how expensive bottled water can be. Manufacturers create the bottles and labels, bottle the water and then ship the water around the world. It makes sense that buying water is very expensive, especially compared to the cost of drinking treated water at home. There is overwhelming and consistently growing evidence that plastic water bottles are just the wrong way to go.
