The myth of bottled water being better for you is just a myth. Companies would love to sell you bottled water for pure profit. The eco-system is the loser where the oceans and landfills have to gobble up bottles that are not biodegradable in nature. The yearly waste of bottles is just compounding with no solutions in sight. There are now bottles that claim to be almost biodegradable. End result is water from the tap is still cheaper, but bottled water seems more sexy and easier to lug around. The price of these bottles will only tax mother nature and we lose in the end. The above chart clearly illustrates the cult of bottled water and the impact it will have in the future if we don’t find an easier way to consume water without polluting.
