Are you an exclusive bottled water drinker who believes that bottled water is the ‘healthier‘ option. If so, forgive us because we’re going to burst your bubble here in a second.
The Hidden Mist Of Bottled Water
Did you know the industry itself acknowledges that up to 45% of bottled water is just plain old water from the municipal water supply, most of all are put in a fancy bottle and sold at a ridiculous 280,000% mark up!
Shocking, isn’t it?
Back in 2006 National Geographic News came out with a report revealing that bottled water is actually no healthier than tap water. Numerous news stations including ABC and FOX all have segments called “The bottled water scam.”
It’s a super quick reality check on the water industry and its sneaky marketing schemes made to scare, seduce, and mislead us.
So, not only are you wasting money on a resource that is readily available in your home, pouring out of your tap-like the fountain of youth, by buying bottles of water you are also contributing to our planet’s plastic pandemic.
In fact, It takes about 1.5 million barrels of oil a year to make plastic bottles for America alone. And according to the Container Recycling Institute in Washington DC, 86% of America’s plastic water bottles don’t even get recycled; they just sit in a landfill.
THE PRO-ACTIVE SOLUTION:
Reduce your pollution footprint and save your hard earned cash and get a reusable BPA free water bottle. Or better yet save a glass bottle or mason jar from a previous purchase and switch to tap water.
