Ban the Bottle

Everywhere you look, there is water in plastic bottles—all shapes and sizes—for sale.pur2o_01

The overwhelming use of bottled water demonstrates how dissatisfied forks are with the quality of their municipal or well tap water.

Bottled Water Not the Answer

Drinking water from plastic bottles seems like a healthy option, but because most tests acidic, it will leach minerals out of your body and, in the long run, will dehydrate you.

Also to consider, the production, shipment and distribution of plastic bottles contribute to greenhouse gases, and most of the discarded bottles end up in landfills, oceans and other waterways.

The fact is, bottled water is not healthy for you, the environment or your wallet.

Danger to You

A Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) report exposed wide gaps in regulations governing the bottled-water industry. There are no mandates by the Federal Food and Drug Administration about how water should be bottled or kept free of pathogens.

The water in plastic bottles is only marginally better than most tap waters. One third of more than 100 brands tested by the NRDC contained contaminants.

Nearly a quarter of all bottled water is actually tap water from municipal sources repackaged by soft drink companies. As a fact, both the Coca-Cola Company and PepsiCo market several brands of bottled water, Dasani and Aquafina among them respectively. Before the Federal Trade Commission stepped in, the companies failed to disclose that PWS on their brands’ labels stood for Public Water Source.

Danger to the Earth

The kind of plastic most commonly used for water bottles—polyethylene terephthalate, or PET—is recyclable; however, just one out of every four plastic bottles is recycled, most are tossed with regular trash. An estimated 40 billion bottles end up in landfills each year, where they leach carcinogenic chemicals back into the ground water/aquifers and the cycle begins all over again.

A recent update on VOX Media maintains because of global water currents and the amount of plastic thrown way, every ocean on Earth has a massive swirling garbage patch. bottles from your day-to-day life will have a huge impact on your wallet, your health and the Earth.
