    Just amazing how much bottled water is sold for astronomical profits.
    And yet many of those who purchase it think we have no issues with clean water and are against the clean water act and such.
    Are against the EPA, govt polloution regs, etc.

    Very confusing if one tries to understand the entire picture.

    It's the convenience of it, nothing more. You stop drinking bottled water after you find out that BPA leeches into the water from the plastic anyway.

    "Google" Bisphenol A. You won't like what you find.

    I have never bought bottled water. I carry my own bottle that I fill with water I filter at home.

    I only ever drink bottled water. I stopped drinking tap water years ago. It has a very distinctive taste, which I hate. I prefer bottled water because to me, it tastes fresh,

    I've got animals & pets that drink out of dirty puddles standing water, ditches & toilets. They are still alive & well.

    I don't look at bottled water as an alternative to tap water.

    I look at it as an alternative to soft drinks

    The volumes equate to about $140/barrel. For water.
    Priorities, folks. Priorities.
