Concord, MA to be First U.S. Town to Ban Bottled Water : TreeHugger

Think its a smart move personally. Don't know why people can't just buy sport drink containers and fill them with water. Brita water filters are like $10 for 3 months of use and they clean the water way better than crappy bottled water which is really just tap water.
Pur is better than Brita, it gets our cryptosportidium. I happen to drink a lot of water and they don't sell the kind of filters I need for my bottle anymore. I object to the banning of bottled water. I do try to bring my own water with me, but you can't carry it through security anymore and you want me to drink unfiltered water? That's just stupid.

In the center of it all
The most popular bottled water brands are just purified tap water anyway.

I firmly believe that drinking straight from the tap is healthy, and character building.

Anyway, NYC has the cleanest and most delicious tap water in the world.

Yeah I grew up drinking out of the garden hose and I'm perfectly. . . . .

Okay moving right along here. . . .

We gave up bottled water at our house partly for environmental reasons and mostly for economic reasons. We just couldn't see paying $12-$16/gallon for bottled water.

We have admired the enterprising soul who first thought to bottle and sell water, though, and admire even more the marketing genius who convinced us that the brand of water we bought was important.

But unless a lot of cities follow suit with Concord, I think Concord merchants are probably going to take a hit because a lot of folks will just go elsewhere to buy bottle water. And they'll probaby buy other stuff in those other places as well instead of at their local supermarket, convenience store, or gas station.

We did the whole Pur walter filter thing. They are designed to break. Period. We got tired of it and drink tons of water so we bought a Culligan under the sink water filter. Because we are plumbing disabled we called a plumber to put it in . . . which, after seeing what he did, was a stupid thing to do it was so easy but . . . hey. We replace the filter every 5-6 months (vs. every 2 months w/the Pur filter) so the price runs about the same. Worth every dime, imo. We keep a gallon jug (yeah, plastic ... can't find glass anywhere) in the fridge. We do buy bottled water by the case only for work for the kid or hubs (he did buy a stainless bottle but it makes the water taste metallic).
