    Also, the purity standards for bottled water are often lower than those for tap water.

    Bottled water is awful for the environment and a really expensive way to get water. If you don`t have access to clean tapwater then bottled water might be the least bad choice available, but otherwise it`s a very high cost for convenience.

    The least bad bottled water is just filtered tapwater anyway. That reduces the environmental cost of it a bit. Many popular brands are tapwater with one extra filtration stage.

    Making bottled water for times of emergencies and to get to people in need is one thing, the average american using it is absurd. Tap water is fine!!!!!!!!!!!

    REUSE your bottles.

    I buy water from the Glacier machines and bought my own 5 gallon bottles and use a metal water can/bottle.

    I have 3 stainless steel bottles, two bottles chock full of BPA, and two of those new BPA things. Also 2 3L camlebacks. I like my water. Oh in my fridge I have 4 1.5L juice bottles that I reuse and fill with water. It makes me sad when people use disposable water bottles.

    See the documentary "Tapped". I can`t recall if it won or it was nominated, but you will find it on the Academy Awards pages.

    Some places the tapping companies have stolen nearly all the water resources. They sell the water back to the communities.

    Water, sun and air are some of the elements of the planet that connects us to nature and it`s fundamental for survival. Ethically speaking it`s insane to make ordinary h20 a merchandise. Frankly, i believe that selling water (not bubbly or flavoured water, like Ramlosa, but the pure water that requires no preparation) should be ILLEGAL in all countries. Water, like air, belongs to us all. Boycot it.

    It isn`t about the ratio of resources, it`s about the ratio of costs. Profit is the name of the game.

    I remember when bottled water first hit the market. Everyone was like, "WHO THE HELL WOULD BUY SOMETHING YOU CAN GET FOR FREE FROM THE TAP"
    Clever marketing and 100 billion bottles later, makes me wish I invested my money when I had the chance.

    So when you use a reusable vessel like a glass just how much energy goes into making that glass and cleaning it regularly? How much polluted runoff water comes from washing reusable glasses?
    You can`t win, EVERYTHING you ever do destroys the environment.

    Not if we could make everything cleaner. Fully biodegradable bottles would be a good step forward. Fully biodegradable soap for washing reusable glasses would be a plus too.

    With all due respect I would like to know your theory on how to produce biodegradable items that are supposed to be used in unison with water before they are meant to biodegrade.

    Now I don`t know everything about the technology but from what I do no, isn`t water used as a main solvent in biodegradable items which means it would deteriorate at a faster rate. And guessing how hard it would be to make, it would in fact use more oil and energy to produce a greater quantity of the biodegradable items as a result of their more rapid deterioration.

    yup. thats about the state of it.
    i am so lucky, the water i drink, falls out of the sky, and is stored in a tank, then i get it out of the tap.
    And, the sky that it falls from is clear and blue and non polluted.
    And, if i want to take some water somewhere, i get it out of the tap, and fill a bottle and take it with me.
    I am so blessed...

    My city has some of the best tap water in the country and I drink it straight out of the tap. Even if it wasn`t, I would still avoid bottled water. I`d invest in a water cooler. At least the bottles get reused.
