Did you know?

In 2007, total US bottled water volume was 8.8. billion gal, a 6.9 percent increase over 2006, and the 2007 bottled water per capita consumption of 29.3 gal increased nearly 2 gal, from 27.6 gal/capita from the previous year. Additionally the wholesale dollar sales for bottled water exceeded $11.7 billion in 2007, a 7.8 percent increase over the $10.8 billion in 2006. Source: Beverage Marketing Corp.

Bottled water is not safer than tap water? In fact, the federal government requires far more rigorous and frequent safety testing and monitoring of municipal drinking water.

Bottled water is thousands of times more expensive than tap water? Compare $0.002/gal for most tap water to a range of $0.89 to $8.26/gal for bottled waters.

As much as 40 percent of bottled water is nothing more than bottled tap water.

Odd tasting water doesn't always mean that the water is unhealthy or contaminated. Chlorination or the mineral content in the water could be the culprits of a funny taste, depending on the region of the state or country. If your water tastes funny, and that is why you prefer bottled water, you could probably save yourself a lot of money by investing in a water-filtration system instead of buying bottled water. Filtering water at home is cheaper and safer than depending on bottled water.
