Food & Water Watch does an excellent job of keeping tabs on the food safety issues I care about. It would be a full-time job to stay updated myself. Their petitions are simple, to the point, and easy to share.

Tap vs. Bottled

Why Tap Water Wins

Don’t Be Fooled

 

See what happened when Food & Water Watch staff took to the streets pretending to promote a new high-end brand of bottled water.

  • Bottled water is not only a waste of your money, it puts tons of waste into the planet as well.
  • Bottled water creates mountains of garbage and causes other environmental problems.
  • Bottled water is thousands of times more expensive than tap.
  • Bottled water is not healthier than tap. A recent study that tested popular brands of bottled found 38 different harmful chemicals, including painkillers, fertilizer and arsenic, in 10 brands of bottled water.

The verdict is clear:

There’s no good reason for drinking bottled water in the U.S. Buy a reusable bottle and a filter and you’re all set to take back the tap!
