Every time I hear yet another chilling story about how bottled water is mangling the planet, I remember to boil my own tap water, fill up a pretty bottle with it, and carry it around. Bottled water with all those fancy advertisements and promotions on tv programmes like Friends, costs up to 10,000 as much as tap water. Besides several studies with all brands have shown in many countries that they are made with municipal water, from unsanitary waters, and have been found to contain pesticides and other unhealthy ingredients.
