Water bottles vs. Tap Water
In north America many people don't want to use city tap water, because it is "unsafe". So many people go for the alternative bottled water. In Cleavland they did a test between city tap vs. Fiji water bottle. What they found out is that tap water better quality and wins in a taste test. This is true across the country in the U.S where tap water is proven to be safer in most cases as it is more regulated and tastier than bottled water. People in the U.S buy more than 500,000,000 water bottles. Why? Because water companies are tricking people into think that tap water isn't safe, but the truth is that it is much better, and one third of all bottled water bottles is just filtered water from the tap. plastic that makes the bottle comes from oil and with 500,000,000 bottles of plastic that is enough oil and energy to fuel a million cars. The reason oil prices are going up is because we waste oil on plastic bottles we use once. Water bottles are the biggest waste of two dollars and our environment. Unless you live in an area where the water isn't really safe, because of polluting industries like the water bottled industry you should always try the tap.In North America we need to push against water bottles and try to ban them from our lives.
