New York Times Editorial If you drink the recommended 8 cups of water a day through water bottles you will be spending $1400 a year opposed to the 49 cents you would be spending for tapReaders Digest Over 25% of bottled water is actually from the municipal supplies and water bottle companies don’t have to put on the label where the water is coming from so when they are saying it is glacier water the water could actually be from a municipal source in Alaska.Natural resource defense council 60-70% of bottled water brands don’t meet FDA regulations where as only 10% of tap water doesn’t meet EPA regulations and EPA regulations are far more strict; they include regulations FDA doesn’t such as an e-coli check, a mandatory surface water filtration system and many more.Therefore tap water is a better choice because it is less expensive, easier to obtain and when comparing quality tap water is better regulated.
