Eat This, Not That! took a look at what is found in bottled water.

 The truth   tap water is better than bottled water and better for the environment

I don’t know about the rest of the world, but for Americans and Japanese, what comes out of the tap is just as good if not better for you than what comes in the plastic bottles, and better for the environment, too! No recycling, no plastic, no contaminants!

Dasani of Coca-Cola is selling Philadelphia tap water that has been purified. The Natural Resources Defense Council found that about 22% of  brands tested contained contaminants ABOVE state health limits.

Let’s see, tap water that meets state, federal and local guidelines or trendy bottled water with fancy names that costs more than gasoline. Hmm…

I’ll put a purifier on my tap water and go with that and be kinder to the environment and my wallet as well. How about you?
