Why We Must Stop Drinking Bottled Water

A four-year review of the bottled water industry in the U.S. and the safety standards that govern it, including independent testing of over 1,000 bottles of water found that there is no assurance that just because water comes out of a bottle it is any cleaner or safer than water from the tap. 
Tap water is tested more frequently and more in depth than bottled water.
Nearly HALF of the bottled water sold in the U.S. is just treated from our municipal water systems.
Less than ONE-THIRD of plastic bottles in the U.S. currently get recycled.
The production of water bottles uses 17 million barrels of oil a year.
