This is so true! We tested the water from bottles collected in TX, CA, NH, NY, CT, OK, BC and Mexico in our University and came to find water qualities to be below what we expected. We found a leaching of chemicals into the water from plastic bottles from numerous sources, but not all.

Not a healthier source of water in most cases, pollutes the planet, lines the pockets of corporations and privatizes water supplies. I can't see the positive.

Very interesting. I used to buy bottled until I decided why am I paying for water when it's readily available out of my tap. So, no longer do I spend money on it.
