Do You Need To Buy Bottled Water?

Jul 19, 2008
Most of us should have been drinking bottled water before. The companies which produce bottled water also invest a lot of money in advertising their products. However, do you really need bottled water? Is there any difference between these products and tap water?

As a matter of fact, there is just virtually unlimited number of brands for such product in the world. This may probably imply that there is a demand for bottled water. However, this does not mean that you need to buy them. This only means that the marketing technique of the companies producing bottled water is very good.

In fact, you may really need to drink bottled water in some occasions. For example, if you are doing some exercises in the park and you cannot find a water source, you may want to have a bottle of water. However, the point here is that you may not really need to buy this water if you can get water say from your home. Remember, the bottled water companies will try their best to make money. As a result, they will try every way to create the demand for their products. From this you may probably be able to understand that many people buy bottled water does not necessary mean that they really need it.

The second question here is whether bottled water is better than tap water. The answer is a NO. They are just the same in most cases. Of course you may think that bottled water may be purer because it is filtered. This is true at this point. And this will usually make the products taste better. However, there should be no different between them except this. At the end of the day you are just wasting your money if you buy bottled water instead of drinking tap water.

Yet if your aim is to drink water which is filtered, you do not really need to buy these products. What you can do is to buy a filter of some kind to filter the tap water so that it tastes better. There are various products which can filter tap water. You may also put the tap water into the fringe so that they can be cooled. This will also make tap water taste better.

As a matter of fact, bottled water is expensive. There is no point to spend so much money on it. You should spend your money on something more important!
