Billions of $$$ in advertising budgets to convince us that bottled water is a normal way to consume H two O. Here is a quote from a Susan Wellington, former vice president of marketing at PepsiCo:
When we are done, tap water will be relegated to showers and washing dishes…
But consider this:
- Bottled water costs over 1000 times more than tap water per fluid ounce.
- Bottled water uses over 2000 times more energy to produce and deliver.
- The purity of tap water is far more regulated than that of bottled water.
- Most bottled water sold today is simply tap water that has been filtered and then bottled.
So why are you still drinking bottled water?
