I just had a new water filter installed. We moved into a house with lead pipes so it really had to be done. But there are many other reasons why filtered tap water is better than bottled water.
Read on and find out why.
- Our planet re-uses the same water over and over. This means that any chemical we use eventually winds up in the water we drink. Our drinking water becomes contaminated by agricultural runoff, household chemicals, lawn chemical, gasoline, dry cleaning solvents and drugs. areas with the highest levels of these synthetic organic chemicals (SOCs) in their water supplies also have the highest incidence of cancer. Filtering tap water can remove SOCs.
- 40% of all bottled water is ordinary tap water from a city water system and regulation of bottled water is inadequate.
- Bottled water is expensive. It costs from $1 to $4 a gallon for the perception of purity.
- It is very bad for the environment. Plastic bottles and transportation of water, sometimes from across the globe, are unnecessary and harmful to our planet.
