6 Lies You Always Believed About Bottled Water

August 27, 2013

Beautiful blond girl drinking water

As Americans have become more health-conscious, the water bottle has become a kind of status symbol.

Carrying a bottle of water—typically embellished with an idyllic scene of nature—sends a message: I care about my health and I care about the environment.

When it comes to beverages, I’m practicing a mindful austerity, deliberately sacrificing flavor and calories for the greater good.

It’s high time water drinkers faced the music. Bottled water isn’t particularly good for the health, it isn’t good for the environment, and it has almost nothing to do with the greater good.

It’s time for water drinkers to face the facts. If you’ve been subjected to the bottled water industry’s marketing campaigns, you have been exposed to some very questionable ideas. Here are some myths about bottled water and the truth behind each one.

#1 Bottled Water Comes From Unpolluted Natural Springs

There is no relationship between the image on your water bottle and the source of the water. While some companies make an effort to provide water from natural springs and wells, about 25 percent of the bottled water sold in the U.S. comes from municipal water supplies.

That means it’s tap water—the same water you get at home.

The bottled water industry is loosely regulated, and water sources are not clearly or consistently revealed on product labels. Don’t be taken in by the pretty pictures: Bottled water isn’t special. It’s just water.

#2 Bottled Water Is an Affordable Beverage

In the U.S., a bottle of water can cost $3 or more. The equivalent amount of tap water costs less than a cent. And remember—odds are good that the bottled water and the tap water come from the same source.

Consumers are willing to pay more for bottled water because it is conveniently packaged and because it may carry a prestige label. But that’s the bottle. The water itself is drastically overpriced.

If you must have the packaging, refill a used water bottle from your kitchen tap—preferably a glass bottle, just in case rumors of chemical leaching from plastic containers are correct. No one will know the difference.

#3 Bottled Water Is Better For You Than Tap Water

For most Americans, tap water is plenty healthy. Nonetheless, there is a booming market in filters and other technology for ensuring water is pure.

Municipal water supplies undergo daily testing to ensure quality and lack of contamination. Bottled water is tested too, but only once a week. So if there’s a problem with the water, inspectors will find it and correct it more quickly at home.

Testing standards are stricter for city water supplies than they are for water bottlers.

Moreover, bottled water is packaged in plastic bottles that are made from petroleum and other nasty chemicals. The government says that contamination from these bottles falls within safe levels, but who wants any contamination at all?

#4 Water Bottles Are Recycled

While the plastics used in water bottles could be recycled, the plain truth is that recycling doesn’t work.

Water bottles make up a growing percentage of the 4 billion plastic bottles that wind up in American dumps every year.

Some bottles go into landfill, where they will spend hundreds of years without degrading or decomposing. Others go into incinerators, where they release deadly cancer-causing gases into the atmosphere.

Even if you’re careful to discard your water bottles in bins marked “Recycling,” there’s a good chance they’ll wind up in a landfill somewhere.

#5 Bottled Water Tastes Better

A research firm called Corporate Accountability International has conducted bottled water taste tests across the United States for the past several years.

The tests have revealed that blindfolded tasters generally can’t tell the difference between bottled water and tap water. If they report a preference, they generally prefer tap water.

In a separate test, researchers offered New York City residents bottled water and tap water from the local supply. Get this: 75 percent preferred tap water.

#6 At Least Water Bottling Creates Jobs

In 2008, an organization called Food & Water Watch reported on the bottled water industry’s dismal employment record.

The organization’s researchers discovered that water bottling plants require few workers—typically only a couple dozen.

Most of these workers come from the home office. As a result, each plant employs somewhere between two and 10 local workers.

Food & Water Watch says that while the average American manufacturing worker was paid $51,428 in 2006, the average worker in a water bottling plant made 19.8 percent less, or $41,236.

Moreover, bottled water workers sustained more work-related injuries than workers in other kinds of manufacturing jobs.

The Bottom Line

There is no benefit to drinking bottled, supposedly-better-than-tap-water water compared to drinking from your faucet at home.

If you’re concerned about the purity of your home water supply, buy an inexpensive filter and invest the money you save in eating healthier, being more active, or buying yourself a gift to reward yourself for resisting the weight of a demanding, capitalist ploy to milk your pocket.

    Interesting article but you left out a lot of important facts.

    Many bottled waters are tap water BUT it’s filtered or treated way beyond what the municipal water goes through. Many bottled waters are processed either by being distilled or via reverse osmosis, both processes provide water that is under 10 parts per million of total disolved solids, most municipal water is around 200 ppm TDS. RO and distilled water also no longer contain the chlorine that was used to treat the municipal water it was made from. Consumers must read the labels of the water they purchase and actually read how it was filtered and how much TDS there is in the bottled water to ensure they are getting something better than the tap water.

    Municipal water is tested at the source, not your taps in your house. Older neighborhoods and houses contain iron pipes that degrade over time and may contribute to adding contaminants so the water at your house may not be as clean as it was when it left the treatment plant.

    I live in a province that charges a bottle deposit on every bottled liquid you buy, generally it’s 5 cents for a bottle of water. The deposit gets refunded to you when you return it to a recycling depot which encourages people not to throw them in the trash, especially when they are in a bin marked for recycling. Most bottles thrown in regular trash are also often recycled as homeless people often dig through public trash cans to collect the bottles and deposits paid on them.

    Bottled water does not have to be expensive. Buying a single bottle at a time is, but buying in bulk costs quite a bit less. I usually buy a case of 35 bottles for $5 when I go camping so about 14.2 cents a bottle, not a bad price for the convenience of clean water while out where there is generally no clean water supplies available.

    The biggest advice is buyer beware. Not all bottles of water are created equal, it’s up to you to read the labels and buy the stuff worth buying. Educate yourself on what constitutes a bottle of water worth buying and don’t get sucked into the fancy looking bottles that super expensive but aren’t any better than the lower cost water that was processed in the exact same way.

      Commercially available bottled water is never distilled! It’s too energy intensive and unpallatable. Countries like Arab states who have ample and cheap energy resort to RO of seawater or brackish water from wells.

        Many bottled waters are distilled, culligan gives you the choice of RO or Distilled water for their water coolers as well as spring water and so do many others. I worked for the company that manufactured and installed the municipal RO system in UAE, it was an awesome project.

    #5- Corporate Accountability International is a biased group with an interest in getting more funding for tap water. I looked for the tests you mentioned (because you didn’t cite) but I found that they made no distinction between bottled spring water and bottled processed water.

    #2- As other posters have noted, you failed to mention the difference between bottled spring water and bottled processed water. Yes, the “spring” water can come from anywhere, and is sometimes equal or even inferior to tap, but that’s just one type of bottled water

      Because in reality there isn’t any difference between bottled spring water and bottled processed water.

      The term spring water is purely just a marketing thing. People seem to forget that most tap water comes from springs anyway. And water has to be processed so it is safe to drink regardless of its source.

      It’s not as much about the taste as the contaminants in the water you can’t taste. You can’t taste or smell carbon monoxide but that doesn’t mean you want to breathe it in.

      Not all municipal sources are fluoridated. Definitely not all. Every water treatment plant I have worked in do NOT fluoridate. If they do, its because council has imposed it on them and it can be found out with a phone call whether your plant does or not. As a water treatment plant operator I am also opposed to fluoride in municipal water, but please, don’t tell people every municipal water source has fluoride. It’s simply untrue.

    Municipal water tested at the point of distribution,not
    on your receiving end, where it is never tested.

    • TJP

      October 7, 2013 at 3:03 pm

      bottled water rarely, if ever, tested.

    • Twyla Dawns

      October 8, 2013 at 10:15 pm

      Municipal water is tested weekly from the taps of multiple homeowners throughout the distribution system. These homeowners receive a stipend in exchange for allowing water distribution workers access to their taps. The taps would also undergo additional sampling if they were downstream from any work being done to the water distribution pipes. Barring any criminal negligence on the part of the workers as happened in Walkerton, Ontario you can rest assured that your municipal water is entirely safe to drink. The only exception would be if there was an event which compromised the safety of the water and at such a time there would be public announcements warning you of such an incident.

    Anti-bottled water articles typically conflate bottled tap water with spring water. Yes, bottled tap water is tap water, but that does not mean bottled spring water is tap water. Read the label.
    Also advantages of bottled water: 1) Spring water may be free of added chlorine, flurorides, chloramines, and associated organochlorides and halogenic compounds added to tap water.
    2) Spring water may be safe for your aquarium.
    3) A sealed bottle is tamper-evident, so is preferred for athletes to avoid drug test positives.
    4) A reusable bottle can get moldy if not washed and dried properly.
    5) If you carry your own reuseable bottle, you have to carry it both ways. If instead you purchased a bottle of water on sight, you save the transportation costs.
    6) Bottled water is a safe alternative to tap water in foreign countries.

      save on transportation costs??? are you serious? do you know how much oil/gas is required for a bottle of water to be manufactured let alone how much is used to ship it from its point of manufacture to its point of sale? i wont even get started on the rest of your “advantages”… aside from 6 all of your “advantages” make you sound ignorant and uneducated

    • Gyice50

      October 19, 2013 at 11:09 pm

      It may not be either but you will never know because Bottled Water unlike Tap water is regulated under Food and as such doesn’t have to be testing continuously like Tap water. Ask Perrier.

    MY chemistry teacher said that bottled water is basically a scam, because when he worked in the sewage plant where the tap water in my area is cleaned out. He said that bottled water is stuffed with minerals, which, as your body actually can’t use most of them, turn into kidney stones. Therefore, in the long run, it is better to just drink tap water, which is basically, recycled waste fluids.

        Water from lakes, rivers, or wells is processed at a water distribution
        treatment plant. It is first filtered through sand, then injected with
        an agent which causes tiny particles to clump together (this is known
        as floc), then it is spends time in a settling tank (
        clarifier) to settle out the particles and then as it enters the
        distribution system it is injected with fluoride and chlorine gases.
        The fluoride gas prevents cavities in children as evidenced by the
        substantially lower rate of caries in children who drink fluoridated
        water as opposed to those who drink non fluoridated water. The
        chlorine is added to kill harmful pathogens which could very easily kill
        you. Water which enters the sewage treatment system is 95% gray
        water, that is water from laundry, cleaning, bathwater and water from
        storm drains. The water enters a sewage treatment plant (which is not
        the water distribution plant) and a chemical is dripped into it which
        creates a floc which is settled out in a clarifier. If it is a small
        municipality and the plant is only a primary treatment plant the water
        is then directed to a second clarfier. If the municipality is a large
        one and the plant is a secondary treatment plant, the water is then
        directed to a biological oxidation unit where it is continuously bubbled
        with air and where bacteria and other microorganisms consume all the
        solid waste. The water then enters the second clarifier. Following
        that as it leaves the plant it is injected with chlorine gas to kill any
        pathogens and is discharged into a receiving lake, river or ocean.

          There are no viable scientific studies that have ever proven that sodium flouride reduces tooth decay, too much will turn your teeth black though. Sodium flouride is a byproduct of aluminum smelting and is considered to be toxic waste and barrels of it must be disposed of accordingly.

    Nearly all the water in bottling plants comes in contact with toxic factory equipment

      Toxic factory equipment? Like what? The chlorine and fluoride in tap water makes it a guaranteed chemical soup.

      Plastic bottles are a huge problem though. We should be holding on to a glass bottle, go to the store with it and fill the damn thing up. It’s amazing how we all bought into the “the future is going to be so automatic” crap. We have a disposable society…when we should be making things that are high quality, that you only have to buy once or that are upgradable. The competitive market place is a sham….

      If you have two companies that make equally crappy things and that purposefully make things fail after a short period of time or make it so that ‘very minor’ upgrades are made to something way too often so that we have to go out and buy the next thing every year…we are setting ourselves up to fail…it’s a false wasteful economy….

      Look the only thing that is left in your water after treatment is a Free or combined Chlorine residual. It is put in the water to keep it safe from contamination. Should you have trouble with the Chlorine, simply put in the fridge for 24 hours prior to drinking you will have Nice, Cold, Chlorine free, water at around a $1:00 per thousand Gallons vrs. $2.00 a pint.

    I like and drink tap water, but I also sometime buy bottled water when I’m on the run or going camping. I like to have my options open.

    Most beverage containers are plastic or lined with plastic, but water gets the bad rap.

    Pop cans would disintegrate without the interior plastic liner.
    Tetra packs have plastic too.

    Glass requires more water & energy to produce and recycle than PET.

    PET is in high demand as a recycled product (carpets & rugs for example).

This list of ‘lies’ is in itself lies and juvenile propaganda that will only fool the ignorant. The only real problem with bottled water is that it is in a petro product container and higher fluoride is allowed by the WHO which means some companies may well add extra if they are connected with the Eugenics program, think maybe Nestle ?

    Bottled Water sales live off of peoples lack of knowledge and when ever possible they try and throw in a little fear into the mix. The fact’s are that all Water plants have to meet Federal, State and Provincial Water Quality Standards. The Operators of the system have to be Certified to the level of the Water system in which they work and for many of them they even have to rewrite their tickets every three years. They are required to test and ensure water quality through all phases of the water delivery cycle, where as Bottled water fall under a food stuff and it’s sampling is not regulated under the same regulations or requirements hence how some large Bottled Water Companies had their contamination problems. The biggest push by the bottled Water industry is to make Water a Commodity, if this ever happens you will all remember back to the good old days when people had their very own Tap.

      That’s a local issue, particular to the water providers in your area. You need to hold them accountable.

    Some good points here but the ultimate crock is what was omitted from this ”story” – Bottled water is available. You can walk into a store anywhere & purchase a container of something not too far removed from what comes from your kitchen tap. Why spend your $3 on something so comically simple rather than a container of soft drink? How about because it doesn’t contain all those sugars, additives, colorings, carbonation & flavorings. How about because, despite the possible impurities mentioned in the ’story’, it is at heart a simple, refreshing beverage with the best nutritional values of the entire cooler. Expensive? Hardly. That $3 reflects the cost of making it available – otherwise go home to your kitchen tap when you’re thirsty. Concerned about the quality of the water & its packaging? Do you share the same concerns about the plastic that constitutes your Coke bottle?

    I have a counter top water filtration system and use a metal reusable bottle. I fill it the night before and put it in the fridge. Stays cold longer than a plastic bottle and doesn’t end up in a landfill. Have had this same bottle for several years now. Plus, when put in a lunch box with a cold pack, it chills the metal all the way up and my bottle stays cold longer than the pack lasts. I wonder how much I have saved……?

    Is it coincidental that one of the most popular bottled waters is Naive spelled backwards?

      Is it coincidental that you call yourself a goat ?

    You could have a filter fitted and bottle your own a LOT cheaper over time.

    Looks like a ton of people have been sucked in by the bottled water industry and aren’t ready to shed their wool.

    MY fresh out of the well tap water that has been run through a filter is the cleanest, best tasting water I have ever had. I have quit drinking bottled water recently after discovering sodium bicarbonate and calcium chloride are in it. And my pre-hypertension headaches have gone away. If I can’t drink my well water, I drink Le Croix sparkling water. In a can.NO Sodium, no sugar, nothing but mango essence and awesomeness!!
