You are wise to drink tap water rather than bottled water which actually comes from another city's water supply:
"Everest Water is not from Mount Everest. It's from Corpus Christi, Texas. Glacier Clear Water is not from a glacier in Alaska. Its source is tap water from Greeneville, Tenn. Big-selling Dasani and Aquafina are also just reprocessed tap water from cities around the country. One of Aquafina's sources is the Detroit River!" (John Stossell)
This lady is hilarious. Sarah the Green: If Fiji Water were to stop their activity, how would that benefit the Fijians? I don't drink the stuff, but that's mostly because I think shipping water halfway around the world is a little ridiculous considering it comes out of the faucet for free at home, but I'm also poor. Plus, I'm blessed to live in a place with yummy tap water, and I used to live where you could smell the tap water from across the room. Bleh!
