Should we continue to buy bottled water?!

Question: Should we continue to buy bottled water!?
I personally think I will!. I keep reading a lot of articles about how tap water is just as safe or in some cases safer than bottled water!. Further more today i read how tap water is 1,900 times cheaper than bottled water!. All that sounds perfect!. But what the government or who ever writes this stuff needs to understand that TAP WATER TASTES LIKE ****!!!!!!!! Make the tap water taste like aqua fina even as nasty as arrow head!. Now the other thing is that tap water in california tatses different depending where you live!. When i moved out of the slums the water tasted so good i never bought bottled water!. all the rich people around the got water from this reservoir in the city of palos verdes california!. Now two towns away in the slums in WILMAS where i am from, the water comes from some where else and it tastes like ****! Unfortunately I am back in the slums until i graduate from college!. all i am saying is if you want me to drink this nasty water at least make it taste good!. According to the article i read today!. they found some of the major bottled waters to contain high levels of chlorine by products, acetaminophen, radioactive materials, sugar, and other stuff!. Hey add that stuff to tap water if it is going to make it taste like aquafina!. Yeah i am a bad speller!.!.!.!.!.!.!.!.!.it is the water!. Imagine what bobby boucher would say about the water!.

Buying bottled water is expensive and bad for the environment!. You can continue to waste your money on it if you like, that hurts you, but the environment you are destroying for all of us!. According to environmental economists, polluters should pay a tax to offset both the cost of waste disposal as well as the cost of restoring the environment!. Please consider the "costs" of bottled water!. The bottles are made from petroleum, OIL! They are then shipped to the bottler and when full then shipped to warehouses and eventually stores, GAS! They are then dumped in landfills or incinerators for disposal, clogging our waterways and destroying our air quality!. Most of the "off" taste in tap water can be removed by just letting it sit open in a container in your fridge for a few hours!. All of the chlorine is then able to dissipate!. Further filtering this water makes it taste even better!. We already have the best tap water in the world, why not use it!? You still will have differences in taste due to local mineral content, but any "off" flavor should be gone!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

You might as well just get a package of bottled water, drink it up, and just reuse the bottles by re-filling them with filtered tap water!. It'll be cheaper in the long run!. I've found that filtered tap water tastes much better if kept in the refridgerator awhile!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

no!! bottled water is a rip off! Just buy a filter jug, its much more fresh and nicer!Www@FoodAQ@Com
