Need another reason to drink tap water? Let me put it to you in a way that makes sense to your wallet:
Bottled water. Costs up to $3.
Tap water. Costs about a penny.
But even beyond the jaw-dropping, face-palming, SMH inflation of bottled water, we’re paying a lot more than we realize.
Thanks to TapIt, the infographic below provides 10 convincing reasons to drink tap water:
Did you know?
- Bottled water isn’t any safer than tap water and could actually be more dangerous.
- Bottled water can cost more than one thousand times the price of tap water.
- Most plastic water bottles are not recycled.
- The plastic in water bottles could harm your health. Chemicals called phthalates, which are know to disrupt testosterone and other hormones, can leach into bottled water over time.
So why do some people still insist on choosing bottled water? The number one answer? TASTE. But a simple water filter installed in your refrigerator, faucet, water line, or water pitcher significantly reduces the chorine and impurities that give tap water that not-so-pleasant taste.
Be frugal. Be healthy. Be conscientious.
But most importantly…
Don’t be thirsty, my friends. Drink tap water.
