The Story of Bottled Water

Houdy!

You couldn’t believe it when you will see this video about the big industry of selling water and how harmful for us it is.

You will see how they lie us to buy bottled water and how they are winning amounts of money and not doing anything god for us or for the good of earth.

Just watch and you will change your mind about drinking bottled water.

The Story of Bottled Water, released on March 22, 2010 (World Water Day) employs the Story of Stuff style to tell the story of manufactured demand—how you get Americans to buy more than half a billion bottles of water every week when it already flows from the tap. Over five minutes, the film explores the bottled water industrys attacks on tap water and its use of seductive, environmental-themed advertising to cover up the mountains of plastic waste it produces. The film concludes with a call to take back the tap, not only by making a personal commitment to avoid bottled water, but by supporting investments in clean, available tap water for all.

A person’s words:

“In China, in general, we cannot drink tap water directly because of its low quality.  Waterworks don’t disinfect deeply and there are still many bacteria and chemical materials in the water. So, we boil the tap water when we want to get water to drink. By the way, bottle water is more prevalent because of its low price and convenience. Some well-known drink companies produce some special bottled water made from mountain snow, which melts and becomes purified water. However, after I watch the video, I am not sure the special purified water is not from mountain snow, they are just possibly from tap water. So I just prefer to boil water and drink it, it is cleaner and healthier than any bottled water.”

So you can see that we have choices and you see that bottled water is not so important to us how do they make us to believe and we have lots of alternatives of drinking water.

We could boil the tap water and then drink it, this process clean the water of impurities and make it good to go.

Of course on the market exist lots of tests to see if the tap water has bacteria, chemical materials and more others than we could decide if we need to drink bottled water or not.

And despite the fact that we are buying bottled water and drink almost the same water from the tap they don’t care where will go the bottle after you empty the bottle.. You will think that if you put the bottle on the recycle trash, the bottle will be recycled and reuse but it isn’t like that ..

Think for a moment at this:

In one summer let’s say in America in one city where population is almost 50.000. The summer it’s very hot and last for a few months, let’s say that two months are extremely hot.

We all drink water every day but when it is very hot we drink more just because we need to hydrate.

So, 50,000 people X 2 months of hot weather = HOW MANY BOTTLES OF WATER ARE BEING DRUNK and HOW MANY ARE NOT RECYCLED ?                    (and the bottles that are recycled but are them ?)

You do the math of this and you will see how WE are doing harm to the planet and implicitly to us..

Think about this for a few moments..

Thank You!
