Is bottled water more natural and cleaner than tap water?
 
by Janis Brizga
 
Bottled water costs up to 1,900 times more than tap water, although its quality is not always better. Furthermore, bottled water makers fail to answer these vital questions of consumers:
Where does the water come from?

Is it purified? And how?

Have tests found any contaminants?

 
Most of the brands (including Pepsi’s Aquafina, Coca-Cola’s Dasani, Crystal Geyser and six of seven Nestle brands) withhold such information. As EWG’s (Environmental Working Group) survey on bottled water quality in USA shows, of 173 water brands surveyed, 18 percent of manufacturers fail to comply with requirements for bottled water, and 32 percent are mum on the above questions.
 
EWG recommends that consumers drink filtered tap water, which is cheaper and purer, and does not cause unwanted waste.
