Every year, American consumers waste billions of dollars on billions of gallons of bottled water. Are you one of them? We’ve been conditioned to believe that bottled water is more convenient and cleaner than the water that flows through the faucets in our homes, schools, and businesses. The truth is that tap water is clean, safe, tested more, just as convenient, and a lot less expensive! Let’s say you drink the recommended 64 ounces of water a day, all from bottles. That’s 24 half-liter bottles every 6 days. Even at bargain prices, that comes to more than $400 a year. If you choose an upscale brand name, that figure can soar to thousands of dollars a year. But the water from your tap costs just a fraction of a penny per day. Based on averages from the American Water Works Association, a day’s worth of water costs only 0.001 cents. If you drink the same 64 ounces daily of tap water, you spend just 51 cents per year!
