Tap Water is Actually Healthier Than Bottled Water


Is bottled water healthier than tap water or just a status symbol? The answer is, bottled water is really just a status symbol drink because many studies show that filtered tap water really is healthier than bottled water. The Environmental Working Group or the EWG did research that showed how many water bottle brands out of 173 would actually tell their consumers what was in their water.

The study showed that many water bottle brands would not tell the consumers on the website how they filtered the water or what was in the water. 18% of the companies would not say what is in the water and 32% of the 173 companies would not tell people how their water was purified. So there is a good chance you will never know what is in your bottled water. The benefits of tap water is that you can view a regular report status of your local tap water so you know exactly what your drinking.

If that is not enough to convince you to switch to filtered tap water than consider this report. Here is what the EWG rated the following popular bottle water brands:
1. Pure Life Purified Water (Nestle), EWG grade = B

  1. Arrowhead Mountain Spring Water (Nestle), EWG grade = C
  2. Aquafina Purified Drinking Water (Pepsi), EWG grade = D

  3. Dasani Purified Water (Coca-Cola), EWG grade = D

  4. Deer Park Natural Spring Water (Nestle), EWG grade = D

  5. Ice Mountain Natural Spring Water (Nestle), EWG grade = D

  6. Ozarka Natural Spring Water (Nestle), EWG grade = D

  7. Poland Spring Natural Spring Water (Nestle), EWG grade = D

  8. Zephyrhills Natural Spring Water (Nestle), EWG grade = D

  9. Crystal Geyser Natural Alpine Spring Water (CG Roxane), EWG grade = F

Filtered tap water always receives an A because after the tap water was filtered it registered as purer than the common bottle water products. It is also cheaper for you to drink filtered tap water than constantly buying new water bottles. Make the change today!

    I heard this too that tap water is better…from somebody who knew about “testing” bottled water at university. They said the results regarding bottled water often had surprising results!
