Why Are We Bottled Water Crazy?

Don’t count myself an over-the-top environmentalist; however according to a recent Forbes article we are now throwing away a million plastic bottles a minute and a shocking 91% of them are NOT recycled. Worse yet it takes 400 years for this stuff to naturally decompose and we’re producing more and more of it each year. Recent production estimates say 300 million tons a year and hundreds of tons of that in bottled water containers and we keep on buying more.

So why are we so bottled water crazy? I suppose a lot of us think drinking bottled water is healthier, more convenient and better tasting. Here’s where the perception meets reality. We all been exposed to marketing messages that lead us to believe bottled water comes from exotic and pristine sources and while some of it does, the nation’s leading brands simply filter municipal water supplies to create their product. It other words its all too often more perception than fact.

It also doesn’t make economic sense either, on average those single serve bottles we love so much cost us about $7.50 a gallon, that’s 2,000 times to cost of tap water. Now that’s crazy even if you’re not a penny pincher.
