Did you know that bottled water actually has negative affects on you? While the price is between $1-$2 for a bottled water, it can be mighty convenient to run into a convenient store and make the purchase. However, many water bottled brands just put tap water into the bottle and disguise it with an eye-catching label. According to ABC News, Aquafina water bottles originate from public water sources. The Natural Resources Defense Council explains that bottled water may not be any cleaner or safer than tap water. The National Geographic wrote an interesting articled titled, Why Tap Water is Better Than Bottled Water, which explains how much money bottled water companies are making but they are merely repackaging tap water. A reporter at ABC News states, “There are more standards regulating tap water in Europe and the United States than those applied to the bottled water industry.” Most of the time, water comes from a municipal supply, is treated then packaged and sold for too much money. Bottled water is regulated by the FDA while tap water is regulated by the EPA. The EPA has much stricter restrictions and regimes, and the EPA must send an annual water quality report to its residents. Bottled water also costs 2,000x more than tap water because of the plastic encasing bottle. In depth research also shows that a majority of purchased bottled water does not get recycled.
