Bottled Water vs. Tap Water ~ who’s the real victor? The answer may surprise you.

By Dian Hasan | September 22, 2010

Americans consume an average of half a billion water bottles a week! Think about it! That’s a LOT OF WATER BOTTLES!!!

In a short film by Annie Leonard (from her “Story of Stuff” project series), she looks at the fascinating (but scary) reality of the bottled water industry, in which she argues the industry is responsible not only for forcing (well ok, creating then…) demand for something that is readily available in most homes… via our water taps! But also for the mountains of waste that ends up in landfills across the globe. Even the plastic water bottle waste is exported to other countries, where parts of it is recycled, and the rest ends up in… you guessed it, landfills!

Watch the movie. It’s not only entertaining but offers plausible solutions, and encourages every one to return to tap water.
