Why Bottled Water?
Studies have shown that tap water is as, or even more pure, than most bottled water because of the stricter regulations that public water resides under.
The cost of a bottle of water is about 150 times what it costs to drink the same amount of tap water.
And in terms of environmental damage, those billions of plastic bottles a year have to go somewhere.
So, why on Earth would I buy bottled water?
TASTE! I actually like Lake Michigan tap water, but our home is just outside the zone to get it. So, the taste difference between my tap and a bottle is night and day.
What exactly is the taste that I prefer, you ask? The taste of nothing.
