OFF-TOPIC: Bottled water is a bad waste of money

I have been saying that bottled water is a waste of money for years, yet now and again (for parties or convenience, etc) I buy it.  This NY Times article lays out what a bad thing it is, and I will resolve to keep filling my bottles up from the tap, and pouring scorn on waiters, barkeeps and anyone who tries to sell it to me — and on myself when I buy it.

Has anyone tried Tasmanian Rain? This uniquely pure rainwater is captured on the pristine island of Tasmania, Australia, where the air is scientifically proven by the World Meteorological Organization to be the cleanest in the world. This is partly due to the fact that the Southern Hemisphere contains only 25% of the world’s population and only 2% of its industrialization. Furthermore, the air over Tasmania has traveled over Antarctica and 10,000 miles of ocean to reach the most western part of Tasmania called “The Edge of the World.” Rainwater, as opposed to groundwater, naturally contains an extra dose of H2O2… Read more »

Hey, I think that bottled water tastes better than tap water. Tap water is just ucky cuz it tastes like there are micro animals inside it. Gross! I usually buy bottled water from Savemart or something so I never drink tap water.

I make tap water palatable by adding lemon.

Matthew:
Please travel to New Jersey before making statements about the loveability of tap water. Bottled water may not be the deal of the century, but tap water ain’t doing so well either.
More evidence that we should all stick to wine …

I mostly agree, but try the water in the central valley sometime. Sacramento and Davis have horrendous water. You have to fill up on the filtered stuff. The water is hard and full of chlorine. (The chlorine will dissapate if you leave it out for a while, but the other stuff is not drinkable–especially if your apartment complex softens the water with lots of salt.)
I wouldn’t buy brand-name water, but I would distill my own or fill up with gallon bottles at the supermarket.

dude, nothing beats the time Coke opened a Diasani plant in England…pay extra for cancer-enhanced tap water! “So now the full scale of Coke’s PR disaster is clear. It goes something like this: take Thames Water from the tap in your factory in Sidcup, Kent; put it through a purification process, call it “pure” and give it a mark-up from 0.03p to 95p per half litre; in the process, add a batch of calcium chloride, containing bromide, for “taste profile”; then pump ozone through it, oxidising the bromide – which is not a problem – into bromate – which is.… Read more »

My mom has convinced herself that water from the tap ‘tastes dirty’. We are not a wealthy family by any means, so to spend money on something that you can get for free seems like a ridiculous waste. I just laugh to myself when I see people walking around the city with fancy glass bottles of water. Its all about the image, I think. They feel elitist and hip, but they really just look like idiots for paying 5 dollars for water. In any case, here is an article on why water is healthy for you, haha… http://www.associatedcontent.com/content.cfm?content_type=article&content_type_id=1165 Good luck… Read more »
