The paper explores the research that reveals many truths about bottled water and shows how bottled water is, as a general rule, a wasteful use of resources. The paper therefore concludes that tap water is preferable and cheaper, and just as safe or safer than bottled water, provided there are adequate filtering technologies associated with the tap water system.
