According to the EWG (an American environmental organization that specializes in research and advocacy in the areas of toxic chemicals, agricultural subsidies, public lands, and corporate accountability) filtered tap water received a better grade than 10 of America’s top selling brands of bottled water. 80% of all water bottles become litter. Imagine a water bottle filled a quarter of the way up with oil. That’s about how much oil was needed to produce each bottle. A refillable steel bottle or BPA free bottle is the best choice but any reusable bottle is better than adding another bottle to the 29 billion water bottles Americans buy each year.
