The Future of Bottled Water?

The Future of Bottled Water?

Do you know where bottled water comes from? Water bottling plants source water from
municipal water sources, springs or other bodies of water. Large corporations, such as Nestle and Coca Cola, have permits to extract water from these bodies of water. In many cases, they pay a small permit fee to extract up to one million gallons of water per day. They don't pay to source the water, however, you pay to use it.

These large corporations are making a profit while contributing to the carbon footprint and in some cases, taking water from sources in need of the water. In Washington state, the residents of Lewis county (in the watershed at the base of Mt St Helens) are excited to see a new bill that would ban new permits. They have been fighting a proposed new plant for Crystal Geyser. In San Bernardino, California Nestle extracts water from a national forest struggling with significant drought. Florida has seen their aquifer levels decrease by an inch per year on average.

If these large corporations are denied permits or must pay source fees, what happens to bottled water? Availability decreases and prices go up. So now you pay more for what you can get out of your own tap. In some cases, bottled water is almost 2,000 times the cost of tap water.

Legislation aside, you can save money and help the environment by filtering your tap water at home. We have a variety of filter systems for your home. Install one of these great systems: under counter filtration, countertop filtration, whole house filtration, reverse osmosis or one of the above with an ultraviolet kit.
