About 25% of bottled water originates from (at least a portion) municipal water systems, the same that comes out of your sink faucet.

  3. OH, that's just horrible.
    I drink only spring bottled water.
    I remember when Coca Cola tried to release their brand of water some time ago and had a scandal when it turned out they were bottling tap water.

  5. yes, i knew this. anyway to make money off our idiocy. i have a filter on my tap water, cause i guess i'm ocd like that. we're just so spoiled. this morning i was watching a show about 10-14 yr old girls forced into marriage, in ethopia. they have to walk to get get their water, & carry the weight on their backs. :( heartbreaking.
