  1. It's all about marketing . Water from the tap is not bad, purify n drink it. It's only God who protects us

  2. I believe this I was sadden to see the effect on our planet is has and kills so many animals sad sad sad!!!

  3. I remember the first time I heard of buying water, It was weird Water used to be free. There was no such thing as "buying water" just like we don't buy air to breath. At that time in the late 70's they had water vending machines (not to be confused with bottled water vending machines) at supermarkets and you had to bring an empty milk carton to fill and it cost 25 cents.

    The only place I knew of water for sale was at upscale, fancy restaurants for the rich until water vending machines and then plastic bottled water hit the market later.

  4. Bottled water company's should move to metal bottles. At least the empties will find there way to a recycling unit.
    Also make them so they float if discarded in seas or rivers.

  5. A c gem, you can purify your water at home, people are just snobs and they want to walk around around showing of the type of water they drink

  6. But if bottled waters have plastic then that means that tap water has even more plastic bc its not filtered

  7. my name is tucker i been in plastic for 40 yrs and i dont believe any of this and plastic company can fix the problem very easy if you are getting plastic in your bottles of water and as a food product it would not hurt you because of the material in it and plastic will not melt as easy as you think yes it can burn but if you burn it its not good for anything but the trash not its going to take 350 to melt it and burn and melting plastic is not the same.

  8. Would love to see how insurance companies justify their rates. They have become extremely well off financially at our expense!!!!!!

  9. Who gives a hoodie who about micro particles of plastics. Tell me about bacteria and harmful chemicals. Heck I grew up drinking out of the water hose.

  10. Boil tap water and put it in a clay pot . Use a wooden gourd if you need to carry water around 😁. When it cools, it's actually pretty tasty. Hi Canada, from Kenya.

  11. Plastic is not the worst form of litter…. it’s styrofoam it never degraded and can’t be recycled. Plastic can be collected recycled and reused styrofoam can not and harms our water life as well.
