Fun fact

[See previous]

Bad to the Last Drop: "In 2004, Americans, on average, drank 24 gallons of bottled water, making it second only to carbonated soft drinks in popularity. Furthermore, consumption of bottled water is growing more quickly than that of soft drinks and has more than doubled in the past decade. This year, Americans will spend around $9.8 billion on bottled water, according to the Beverage Marketing Corporation. "

Comments:
And what if that money was instead spent on better water treatment plants so that people did not feel the need to buy bottle water?
 
A lot of bottled water comes directly from municipal water supplies. Some brands even say so in the fine print! :-)
 
Americans have a long way to go.

They're quite willing to pay upwards of $10 a gallon for bottled water, despite the proven, long-term safety of municipal tap water, yet they grumble when they have to pay $3 a gallon to fill the tanks of their Stupid Ugly Vehicles.

No wonder our current President was so easily re-elected. :-D
 
It is not new that bottled water might even be worse. You don't know how long they are in those bottle or if the plastic they reside in (usually it is in plastic) is bad for the water, etc.

Also if we think outside the business plan, if everyone was more healthly on earth, then I guess there will be less disease, and everyone will benefit of it. It is a kind of synergy. If all your brothers, sister, mom and pop are in health, you have less chance to catch disease from them, etc.
