All of us have paid for bottled water at some point in our lives thinking it is the smart thing to do. You are not alone, every year we consume 70 billion gallons of bottled water.
You pay for a water bottle but how much more are you exactly paying when compared to tap water? Well, bottled water costs 2000 times more than tap water. We pay more for bottled water than for oil, gas or even coke. And shockingly enough, the source for bottled water is often the local tap and sometimes springs.
It often takes 5 to 11 times more water to produce a water bottle than the water the bottle holds.
Are you sure you want to buy that bottle of water?
