2010 Bottled Water Report

Is Your Bottled Water Worth It?: Find Your Water

June 10, 2009

Disclaimer: Drink plenty of water, but avoid bottled water when you can. It pollutes the environment and is often nothing more than tap water. When you must, choose brands with high scores (clear labeling) and advanced treatment.
