    Tap Water

    1) In Canada, tap water is monitored every 3 seconds. Bottled water goes through one series of tests, then just sits in the bottle for who knows how long. The chemicals in the plastic bottle eventually mix with the water and you'd never know because you go by the results of the single series of tests that companies advertise.

    2) Bottled water uses a lot of oil: to manufacture the plastic and to transport the bottles.

    3) Bottled water can cost anywhere from 240 - 10000 times more money than the same amount in tap. The extra money you're paying just goes to transport, manufacturing of the stupid plastic bottles, advertising, some water testing and company profit.

    4) So much time, effort and money goes into the disposal and recycling of the plastic bottles, as opposed to the ease of just buying a better-looking reusable bottle that you can refill everyday.

    5) Most bottled water is just filtered tap water anyway.

    This is, by far, my favourite tap water vs bottled water video:

    In Indonesia, bottled water is highly recommended for drinking. You don't know what's in tap water here.

    Tap water, filtered by a carbon filter. It tastes as good as bottled water and it's better for the environment.
