Is our drinking water a real concern? What is the difference between tap water and bottled water? Is one better than the other?

 Tap Water

*Environmental-selecting tap water over bottled is with out a doubt much better for the environment. Less plastic equals healthy environment.

*Taste-While some believe that tap water has less quality in taste, in a blind taste test, it was very hard to tell the difference between the two.

*Expense-While water is one of your Utility bills or free when you find it elsewhere within the community from public drinking fountains. We simply get to turn on a faucet in our home and restaurants. Tap water is extremely cost effective as opposed to bottled water.

*Safety-According to the CDC our tap water is one of the safest in the world. A nonprofit organization called Food & Water watch say that our tap water is more subject to testing as opposed to bottled water.

*Bottom line-Research is always necessary. Tap water contain microorganisms and chemicals. And not all contaminants are subject to regulation.

 Bottled Water

*Environmental-According to the nonprofit organization Container recycling Institute EVERY DAY in the US people throw away 60 million plastic water bottles. And we all know where they end up.

*Taste-It is said you may want to consider the source, may of the bottled waters are simply filtered tap water. The taste difference will differ if you choose sparkling water, flavored or mineral.

*Expense-It is written that bottled water is 2,000 more the expense of tap water. Yet, very convenient to hand out in situations where water is not readily available.

*Safety-The FDA sets the rules for bottled water. Requiring the safety. However, through processing and plastic itself many water bottles contain microplastics contamination.

*Bottom line-Again do your research. If it is important for you to know what you are consuming and what is best for you. Research the direct source.
