Drinking Water: Bottled or From the Tap?
Americans buy 29 billion plastic water bottles a year. Manufactuers use 17 million barrels of crude oil to make these plastic bottles. Only one in every 6 of these bottles are recycled.
Water from your kitchen tap is as safe as the bottled water you buy. In fact, it may be safer, as concerns grow that chemicals from the plastic bottles may leach into the water.
Make the wise choice. Water is good for you, keep drinking it. But think about drinking from the a glass at home or carrying water in refillable stainless steel water bottles.
