Just because there are pretty flowers or flowing streams on the front of the plastic water bottle doesn’t mean what's inside is pure. The Natural Resources Defense Council found that over one-quarter of all bottled water is actually from the tap. And even if it’s filtered, they still found instances where this water had chemical phthalates, mold, arsenic and even E. coli in samples. Even more concerning, you have no idea if that chilled bottle previously was stored under conditions where excessive heat could leach chemicals into the water. Just a friendly reminder: Use a reusable bottle and fill it with clean tap water.
