Which is better, bottled water or tap water? Did you know that the federal government does not mandate that bottled water be any safer than tap water – the chemical pollution standards are nearly identical (EWG 2008)? In fact, bottled water is less regulated than tap water!
“When you shell out for bottled water, which costs up to 1,900 times more than tap water, you have a right to know what exactly is inside that pricey plastic bottle.” This is why the Environmental Working Group (EWG) rates bottled water for the consumer to be fully informed and their 2011 findings are now published on their website: What’s In Your Bottled Water – Besides Water?
Call to Action:
If you purchase, or even drink, bottled water download the EWG’s report and read it.
EWG recommends that you drink filtered tap water. You’ll save money, drink water that’s purer than tap water and help reduce the massive amounts of plastic bottles that end up in the landfills.
