The Price Paid For Bottled Water

Aug 4, 2008
In a bid to become healthier people, the new trend of drinking plenty of water everyday is sweeping the nation. This is a really good thing because so many of us were literally drying up from a lack of water. We would spend all day drinking sodas and other sugary drinks that were not good for us when all our bodies really wanted was water. Today almost anywhere you look on the street, in the office, in the gym, even at home, everyone is carrying around a bottle of fancy water of one name brand or another. Water is the new soda and it has the price tag to prove it.

One question that many people are beginning to ask is whether or not those costly individual bottles of water that they are buying everyday are really any better quality than the regular water that they get from their taps at home. People are spending a dollar and more for one bottle of drinking water that is supposed to come from an Alpine stream or other pure sounding place, but is it really any better for us? Some people have actually had the bottled water tested against home tap water and the results were not that different if there was a difference at all. Whether you want to continue paying a ridiculous price for a bottle of water is up to you, but is it being discussed how many of those individual plastic bottles we are dealing with.

It would seem that the numbers of these plastic bottles are staggering and there is serious thought being given as to what will become of all of them. If everyone took on the responsibility of making sure that they ended up being recycled it might not be so bad, but the real point is why so many have to be manufactured in the first place. Many people choose to buy their water at the super market or department store by the gallon or use their tap water from home and then refill their own personal plastic container day after day.

Even those who buy their water by the gallon are finding places to have them refilled over and over again. This will help cut down on the numbers of all these plastic containers having to be reproduced so much. With all the trash that our country produces each and everyday, it is only wise that we should do whatever we can to reduce that amount of trash. Recycling is wonderful, but reusing until it simply must be recycled is an even better idea. Using water from home when it is of good enough quality and reusing a plastic or glass container repeatedly will save us both the price of buying water and help reduce a huge price to our planet.
