A recent report posted on the web shows scary results of the best and the worst bottled water brands. The study by the nonprofit Environmental Working Group (EWG) analyzed 173 bottled water products to determine if companies disclose information on where water comes from, how or if their water is treated, and whether the results of purity testing are revealed.
The results show that the majority of brands do not disclose complete information regarding source, purification, testing and advanced treatment. Not even a single brand was graded A, only three brands received grade B, a few brands were graded C but the vast majority were graded F “murkiest labels”.
It’s no surprise the results show this much lack of information regarding sources of bottled water. Past reports have shown a good number of brands use municipal water in the production of their products.
More than half of the bottled water products surveyed failed EWG’s transparency test. An incredible 18 percent didn’t say where their water comes from, and another 32 percent did not disclose any information on treatment or purity of water.
So, instead of spending money on “murky” labels of bottled water, buy a water bottle and enjoy pure water at no additional cost to you and our environment.
Buying a water bottle is one of the smartest ideas. You are protecting the environment, saving money, and improving your health by increasing your chances of drinking more water and less soda.
Most work places offer filtered water and, if you still don’t have one, consider purchasing a water filtration system for your home. A water filter is definitely one of the best investments for you and your family as it pays itself in a matter of weeks.
