If you're concerned about contaminants in the tap water you drink every day, you're not alone. We all deserve to know what we'll be putting in our bodies when we turn on the tap. This is one of the reasons why EWG created its Tap Water Database in the first place.
But if you want safer water for yourself and your family, bottled water isn't the solution - not for your pocketbook, not for your health and certainly not for our planet. Your best option for cleaner, healthier drinking water on the go is filtered tap water and a reusable glass or stainless steel container. As we say here at EWG, know your water, pick the best filter and choose a BPA-free container.
Here are five reasons why you should say no to bottled water and choose filtered instead.
- 1. The cost.
- 2. The quality.
- 3. The bottle itself.
- 4. The trash.
- 5. The wasted energy.
