I am more of a Fiji or smartwater person but if I can't find either, I will go with Aquafina. You?
Get Hinckley Springs delivered....
If I can't get that, Like I'm out, I'll usually buy Aquafina.
Sixty million plastic water bottles are thrown away each day. (and that figure was 2007)
Filteted tap in stainless steel bottle for me.
Why I recycle.
Without being a smart ass, ordinary tank water, boiled of course
live on an island, so plenty of rainwater available.
the bottle isnt the only waste.
omg living in an island is so romantic.
and I'm sorry but to the people that prefer tap, i just can't do it. Bottled water for in the go and filtered Breta water when I'm home.
I drink out of the tap/water fountain 90% of the time.
Depends on where I am. At home in Turkey or in Canada I drink tap water. When traveling though, I stick to bottled water.
Really the only reason I drink bottled water is for convenience. I grew up on tap water and still drink it.
Fuck bottled water. That's my type.
a little ditty re drinking water from a creek / stream 2002/4 odd.
about 10/8 years ago, when bottled /plastic containered water had JUST come on the market, in NZ mainly someone who was basically taking tap water from a town supply down the lower North Island of NZ bottling and marketing it, fair enuf.along with supposedly imported evian and perrier etc , for the pretend elitish.
I was camping for several months each year,on Island, at a friends beautiful setting campgound
So every year up to 140 persons would arrive in them BIG 4wd yank tank Remuera ( Auckland NZs elite-ish area)Tractor vehicles, also a big new item in the day
They would arrive with heaps and heaps of 2/4litre Plastic containers of this water.....seemingly to last them the 2 weeks they were booked in.................not.......as in it lasted them all of 3/5 days ( hot NZ Summer holiday times)
aaaaannnnnddd without a doubt, within the few days, here they were wondering down to the crystal clear running stream that was approoved drinking water, and replenishing there containers.
Source of ammusement for us locals there.
I imagine they all survived, as we never heard of any deaths or illness due to the supposedly foul drinking water.
2012 now, and i believe the water is tested for drinking suitability annually, prior to the campers arriving.
I can understand City living persons insistence of bottled water etc, surely dont envy them supposedly needing tobbuild it into there daily living budget tho.
India / China etc Yes, other countries, perhaps not so much.
I make my own with the Brita filter system but if I have to buy water I like Fiji because it tastes like the tap water in Honolulu.
I'm a little bit of a green person so I have a Brita pitcher system at home. Constantly refilling that. If I'm out and about and have the urge for a bottled water I go with Smartwater. At work, we have the good old Alhambra delivery.
Tap water, 100% of the time. Bottled water: big $$$ over time, plus all the waste with the bottles, even if you do recycle. Lots of energy and resources going into dealing with those bottles.
I drink rainwater from puddles and lick the dew from plants.
Honestly, I wish I could do that. However, the tap water here is HORRIBLE. They pretty much just strain it to get the rocks out, then chlorinate it to death to kill all the wigglies. It's revolting, especially because the majority of the water infrastructure here is roughly 80 to 100 years old.
Then, all the local pollution doesn't help, being at the southern tip of Lake Michigan, with several of the local rivers and streams that discharge into the lake, quite near the filtration plants being little more than open sewers.
I agree, the tap water here is TERRIBLE. I have a Bobble so thats usually what I drink my water from, but I occasionally like a nice Fiji
