    Hey, man, we're just entering a new paradigm: “The Earth + Plastic.”

    You want to fix the bottled water problem? Put a 25 cent deposit on every bottle and use the proceeds to clean up this crap and recycle it properly.

      Exactly!

      You NEVER see aluminum cans lying around because they have a value.

        And if plastic water bottles had value, there would be a deposit for them.

    More water filter companies propaganda.
    You can tell how silly she was with no facts behind her, she is just another idiot trying to make money out of the bottled water debate, she had not passion what so ever about what she was saying.

    A toxic cocktail that looks like water coming out of a tap is NOT as healthy as bottled water.
    The bottled water market is and will keep growing because because know and can taste and feel the difference between healthy bottled water and poisoned tap water.
    Stop manipulating figures to suit you and your bullshit.

    If you or anyone is concerned about the environment they should consider the millions of tonnes of toxic chemicals added to tap water that eventually end up harming all sea life.

    We love bottled water.

      “If you or anyone is concerned about the environment they should consider the millions of tonnes of toxic chemicals added to tap water that eventually end up harming all sea life.”

      Do you know what plastic is made of? Petroleum products! The gulf of Mexico is a sea of oily slime!
      Notice any correlation with dead sea life?

      The problem isn't the water IN the bottles, its the bottles….
      Bottled water may be more pure for now, but if you think the bottles are a good thing, you are not thinking much at all.
