Glass, stainless steel, aluminum, plastic… There are lots of containers to drink it out of, but what kind of water are you drinking? This is more like a survey, but it you want to have a strong opinion as to what’s right and wrong, feel free. The crew at Tappening.com certainly does. They feel you are better off drinking straight from the tap as opposed to purchasing bottled water.
Personally, my checkbook is one with them. And of course, I also like the idea of not using so many plastic bottles for environmental reasons. Like everyone, I’ve guzzled my share of bottled water. Presently, I drink a lot of tap water, usually filtered but I’m not always so good about that. If I tend to get lax on the filtering, I just try to remember the last water report that my township sent out. Not exactly purified.
Here are a few other things that caught my attention on Tappening:
- Drinking tap water not only supports mental and physical health, but is easy on the planet. People who buy bottled water are doing harm to the environment and acting out of ignorance. (Way to be blunt fellas!)
- Bottled water costs as much as $10 per gallon compared to less than a penny per gallon for tap waters.
- Making bottles to meet Americans’ demand for bottled water required the equivalent of more than 17 million barrels of oil in 2006, enough fuel for more than 1 million United States cars for a year, and generated more than 2.5 million tons of carbon dioxide.
- If you choose to get your recommended eight glasses a day from bottled water, you could spend up to $1,400 dollars annually! The same amount of tap water would cost around 49 cents.
