I am proud to say that dad bought a water filter system that works on all the house [showers, toillets, laundry, etc.] and also another one that just filters the drinking water. Maybe when they bought it like +15yrs ago it was quite expensive but on the long run you are saving a lot cause you dont have to buy bottle watter. The water tastes good, it is very good on your skin keeps it soft -does not dry it up- and it does make your clothing last longer. So in the end it is a win/win situation cause you save in many other ways too.
I going to share this video of The story of bottled water. I found via Eunice Feliciano‘s tumblr page. You have to watch it. I have been wondering about this subject for quite some time. I know that there are some times that you have no other option that to buy bottle water. I get that and it happend to my many times. Still I bet you have wondered why we ended up depending on bottle water and where do all those plastic bottle end up going. When I was at school I use the water fountain. Never got sick. Nowdays they are nowhere to be found. Health issues some might say.
People should just invest on a good water filter system not spend money buying bottle water. That in the long run will be less expensive and it will work for many years if you give it the needed maintenance. After you get the water filter you can get this eco friendly water bottles with no BPA [more info on bottles].
So DO watch this video so that you finally understand that there is no need in expending on bottle water. Come on honestly… to be charged $1.00-$5.00 for a single .16 oz of water that you can get from your house makes no sense.
The Story of Bottled Water, releasing March 22, 2010 on storyofbottledwater.org, employs the Story of Stuff style to tell the story of manufactured demand—how you get Americans to buy more than half a billion bottles of water every week when it already flows from the tap. Over seven minutes, the film explores the bottled water industry’s attacks on tap water and its use of seductive, environmental-themed advertising to cover up the mountains of plastic waste it produces. The film concludes with a call to ‘take back the tap,’ not only by making a personal commitment to avoid bottled water, but by supporting investments in clean, available tap water for all.
