If you’re like most families drinking water has become a massive part of our daily routine. Most of us send our kids off to school with either a bottle of water or thermos with filtered water. Even those of us that have filtered water systems in our home find ourselves buying bottled water for those occasions when we go out. And there are those that still fill those five-gallon jugs at the local dispenser or water store. Yes, I said water store. Who would have ever thought just ten years ago that we would have water stores popping up all over town?
Don’t Be Content with Bottled Water
Most of us know of water filtration systems but have neglected to get the facts about them. Many of us are stuck in our old ways and quite honestly––happy with it. From 1997 until 2005 bottled water sales went through the roof growing at a rate of 700 percent. Our landfills have also seen the abuse associated with bottled water. Studies by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) have shown that our drinking water is safe for consumption. Regardless, if the EPA or any other government agency say our water is good for drinking were not turning back. We’ve all heard the horror stories about drinking water.
