Disgusting Water – You Will Think Twice About Bottled Water

Note, at the link, there is a video trailer that you can watch.

I watched the trailer.  Definitely something any family cannot miss.


Tapped , a new documentary about the bottled water industry from director Stephanie Soechtig and the producers of Who Killed the Electric Car? is a pretty damning look at how consumers have been tricked into spending too much money on water packaged in plastic and quite often not as clean as what’s available from the faucet.

Not only is it a clear waste of resources (only 20 percent of plastic water bottles used in the United States are recycled, and far too many of the rest probably end up in the Pacific Garbage Patch), it’s an incredible waste of money for consumers, who pay more than the price of gasoline for water that’s marketed as “pure,” but in reality is largely unregulated, full of harmful toxins like BPA, and far less safe for drinking than free tap water. (In fact, 40 percent of the time, bottled water is nothing but municipal tap water, freed from the government oversight that keeps it safe.)

The film’s website lists where you can see it in the theater. So far, it will be screened in a smattering of cities on the East and West costs. There’s also a Facebook page for the film.


NOTOCHEMO’S CONCLUSION:  I don’t know – water ionizer, filter for the faucet, lemon juice added to water – eiher expensive, or I don’t really know any more – something as simple as water, as free as water, is now such a commercial agenda.
