Most bottled water sold is just tap water that was filtered. If you want a more pure source than simple tap water, you can purchase your own filter/pitcher (PUR, BRITA or the best, ZERO) and filter your own water, preventing hundreds of plastic bottles from being manufactured, used and then discarded for no real purpose.

The best way to help your budget and the planet is not to consume things that are simply nonsense. Bottled water is an incredible hustle, foisted off on consumers by the corporations to sell us something of little value for huge profits, planet be damned.

Right on L.G. you hit the bulls-eye.It's common sense.
As grandpaw used to say, common sense is very un-common.
The corporations are hitting the jack-pot thanks to peoples lack of common sense.
