    not all bottled water is tap water or public water as they were calling it. I

    know Aquafina was found to be and they had to change their label. Thats the one

    brand I never drank because it always made me feel sick. I didn't like it.

    Dansani does have a good clean flavor to it. Even if its public water it is

    still well filtered.



    As far as the enviornment, water bottles can readily be recycled and used in

    many ways. Just a matter of getting people to cooperate.

    I used to buy a lot of bottled water, in the case when it is on sale, and

    individual bottles when I needed one in a pinch. テつ Then I started reading

    about the effect on the environment.......billions of bottles going into

    landfills and it takes 1,000 years to break down plastic......and not to mention

    the chemicals that leach out as it breaks down. テつ And then I learned that

    bottled water is nothing special.....it's just tap water.テつ And why does

    ANYONE spend $1.39 to $1.79 for a bottle of tap water????????????????テつ Or why

    would I spend ANY amount - even the cost of buying it on sale by the

    You can also buy a filter for your own tap water, though, and save a

    bundle doing it that way over time.

    some bottled water is tap water, some is spring water. It depends upon the company making it.

    Some tap water is NOT fit to drink, some is. I drink a lot of bottled water, and I drink a lot of tap water.

    The tap water at my job would make anyone hurl, it was just plain nasty.

    Our house water is pretty good. But with everyone involved in outdoor

    activities, I prefer buying the bottle water on sale. I don't mind paying what

    amounts to anywhere from a few cents to maybe 40 cents per bottle. Yesterday, I

    picked up 3 cases of Dansani, my favorite..for $9.99. That's 72 bottles at less

    than 14 cents per bottle. I'm willing to pay that for the convenience. Also, in

    my experience, the reusable ones, if they don't get lost, get pretty nasty after

    awhile.

    Regarding bottled water

    We are on a well and the water is very heavy metal...you can not drink it... we both a water filter container like the britta and filter it... I keep extra empty little bottles and just keep refilling them so we have them if we go out.. it works out much cheaper than constantly buying water.

    I bought a water pitcher with a filter (PUR, I think) on clearance at

    LOWES last month and I LOVE IT!! I love water..but don't like the

    chorine taste of our water...this alone has saved us alot of money. The

    kids fill our water bottle back up and take with them.
