The Story of Stuff: Bottled Water

I highly recommend this funny and informative video about bottled water.

    That was cool to watch, I don’t buy too much bottled water mainly because of the costs of it. You can be paying as much as a bottle of cola and its like this video says, filtered tap water, re-branded!!!

    However I think this video is more relevant in the USA than the UK. The people of Cleveland have ran tests on their water Vs bottle water and they said that the quality of public water is better and the taste is even better which I wish was the case over here in the UK. I don’t know about the USA cause i’ve never been there but do you ever find that your tap water tastes of chlorine?

    Over here in the UK they stick so much of the damn thing in public water that it stinks when you fill yourself a glass full. Then when you taste it its horrible! I prefer the taste of bottle water even if it is filtered tap but I also believe in what this video is going on about and how we should all make the change back to tap but I think the local governments need to improve the quality of tap water here in the UK.

    One thing we use at work and I dunno how well these things have taken off around the world but i’ve never seen another one bar what we have, is this water filtering device with mineral stones. It can take a few litre’s of water in one go so its pretty easy to use. You fill it up into the first reservoir and then it filters down into the clean reservoir ready to be dispensed till your hearts content and it costs like £100 and you just keep using it again and again, you probably have to change the mineral stones or a filter every few months but its GREAT!

    Anyways, good video defgrip, I hope it makes people make the change back to tap or other ways of getting cleaner water without destroying the environment as much.

    Thanks for posting this guys. I’ve saw it in a class in school. Lucky bottled water sales have dropped 30% in the last year.
