Drinking Tap Water Instead of Bottled Water

June 24, 2010

Clear drinking glass being filled with water from a kitchen faucetConserving water is critical to all of us. While it may seem as if we have an endless supply of water, we don't. Check out the important, and very interesting, information on the Internet about how much water is consumed, where, and how much is wasted. One of best tips is to buy a stainless steel jug and fill it with ice and tap water and refill the jug whenever you want.


This is very economical, too. For every 1 gallon of bottled water you drink, it costs $10.00 (way more than a gallon of gas!) But, for every 1 gallon of tap water you drink, it only costs 1 cent! Drinking tap water not only saves you money, it also helps to save the environment from plastic bottles that should be recycled but aren't. Most end up in landfills or waterways.

Good day everyone. One day, I sat and realized how much money I was spending on bottled water. I thought how good my water is in my home town.


I began to put the used water bottles in the dishwasher. When done, I would refill them with pipe water and add to the fridge.

Refilled water bottles in the refrigerator.

I was buying bottled water because I didn't like the taste of the water coming out of the faucet until I set it out for 24 hours.
