Good video to watch on manufactured demand as it relates to bottled water, one of the biggest scams around.
One of the videos claims is a bit specious – bottled water often does taste better than tap water. But to that I have two responses: 1) get a filter if you must, and 2) just suck it up. Water’s primary function is to keep us alive. The water from your tap will do that, and, for the overwhelmingly vast majority of communities in America, it won’t make you sick.
It boggles my mind that we have defeated one of nature’s biggest obstacles to survival: we have a steady, reliable source of clean water that is continuously tested for pollutants and pathogens. We use this water largely to piss in and keep our yards green in the summer.
Drink water from the tap. If you don’t like the taste, quit whining and drink water from the tap. You’ll get used to it, and you’ll be doing the planet and your wallet a favor.
