Everyone knows that drinking an adequate amount of water is critical to our survival, but should we worry about whether we get our water from a bottle with a nice label or from the kitchen sink? According to Mr. Benjamin Grumbles, the head of the United States Environmental Protection Agency’s water programs says “It’s an urban myth that bottled water is safer than tap water.”
Many consumers admit to actually drinking both tap water and bottled water. For most people, if you have a filter at home, you probably could not distinguish the taste between the two. Nearly half of bottled water comes from a tap not the artisan springs and beautiful tropical waterfalls as we would like to imagine. In those cases, the water is filtered in many of the same ways as a home water filter works, except on a much larger scale. Chlorine and other contaminants are removed from the water prior to bottling.
If you are still trying to decide between the two, there is no question that tap water is better for the environment. Bottled water is typically packaged in single-use bottles. There are many environmental costs in the production, delivery, and disposal of millions even billions of plastic water bottles annually. Some people have tried to limit their consumption of bottled water because of the impact on the environment not to mention their wallet.
While there will always be a need for bottled water, tap water is a great bargain that you should not overlook.
