Project Bottled Water: Help build our database

Monday, March 19, 2007

EWG is about to embark on a new study about bottled water--where it comes from, how it's "purified," and if it's even worth the expense. A big part of this project is just compiling the data, so we need your help to gather information from the labels of whatever bottled water you have at hand.

In order to help, we'd like for you to tell us:

  • What brand?
  • Where did you purchase it?
  • How much did you pay?
  • What type of container?

There are a few additional questions, and the whole process only takes a few minutes. If you're willing to go to your local store and record the information for several additional brands, even better!

On the first day, Project Bottled Water netted over 1,000 labels in under four hours, and we've got about 3,000 now--that's more than halfway to our target of 5k in about four days. Nice work, folks! With your help, we'd like to get those 2,000 more by Thursday, March 22rd.
