Why do people buy bottled water? Studies show they think it’s safer, but tap water must meet higher safety standards than bottled water. About 40% of bottled water actually starts out as tap water in places like Queens, NY and Wichita, KS. It takes an environmental toll too: those plastic bottles get thrown away at a rate of 30 million/day in the US alone. Drink tap water – it’s much less costly on your pocketbook and the environment.
I was a bottled water junkie. The habit born out of convenience. Now in tote, a stainless steel water bottle for me and my little ones.
