Bottled Water, the Problem...
HealthandMen has a rather impassioned take on bottled water. Take a look:
Bottled water is a controversial thing to begin with because a lot of the companies claim that its filtered and purified when in reality they are filling the bottle normal like everyone else. The purification comes from the actual plant that the water has been sent through the first time, so technically they aren’t lying. I’ve tasted “spring water” that tastes like they filled it out of a toilet. Evian to me tastes terrible and the Stewarts Franchise in NY sells “Spring water” that to me tastes even worse than Evian…
… The real problem is everyone is saying that we need to do something about it but no one wants to create programs on a large scale to recycle. The only ones wanting to “Do something” about it are the sellers of water filters that look at this as a grand opportunity to sell their filters and slap a sticker on their box saying how toxic your faucet water is and how goody-goody they are because they are trying to help the environment by using a filter instead of plastic bottled waters. We need large scale recycling programs and we need them now. Sure some states have them but if they really wanted to help they would make it mandatory for all plastic bottles be recycled. In some states they charge a 5 cent deposit on every can or bottle, glass or plastic and even Canada refills bottles. These are just a few incentives for people to recycle. I rarely buy bottled water and when I do I buy a bottle and use the same bottle over and over by refilling it at the water fountain at work.
