Bottled Water

Bottled water is now the largest beverage category by volume in the US. Food & Water Watch explains that 64 percent of bottled water comes from municipal tap water sources, sometimes further treated and sometimes not.

The plastic that seals bottled water uses petroleum, which raises environmental concerns and causes a negative environmental impact. Discarded one-time-use plastic water bottles turn up everywhere and are more negative than plastic straws. The plastic used to make single-use water bottles also contains chemicals called endocrine disruptors such as bisphenol A. BPA and other endocrine disruptors alter the way the body makes and uses certain hormones, which could have negative health consequences.
