Bottled Water

I just read this (really long) article today that says American's are spending about $15 billion a year on bottled water. Really? Good grief. The article has some interesting things to say - if you can make it through to the end. I drink water all the time and personally, I have always resisted the idea of bottled water for the most part. The cheap side of me simply doesn't want to pay for something I can get for free from the tap. And I'll admit that I'm not picky at all about the way my water tastes. It's all water to me. I have a hard plastic water bottle at my desk at work that I reuse and take with me to lunch. It's not that I haven't used bottled water when I've needed it - it's just that I prefer not to. The article discusses many insights into the "water industry" that I had previously not thought about and that are, at the very least, thought provoking. Check it out.
