This is simply mind numbing.

Yep. Pure B.S.
Stop believing the lie. Save your money, your health, and the planet. Stop drinking bottled water.

So did I. The whole industry is a scam and Penn and Teller showcased it expertly.

It takes more than 17 million barrels of oil to produce a years worth of plastic water bottles.

It's been know for years that most bottled water is tap water.

And yet we are willing to pay 5000 times the price for an inferior product.
Tap water= .000001 cents
Tap water in a toxic, destructive container= $4.00
P.s. math nuts, sticklers, S2000, Townsend : I didn't count my decimal places. Google it for actual price comparison.

Also:

[quote]Another frequent criticism of bottled water is the control of limited water sources by private companies, often with the result of closing access to those resources by local peoples, and the near global monopoly of those resources by a small number of corporations, most particularly Nestlé S.A., the World's largest producer of bottled water[/quote]

Once again, it's just a matter of following the money.
