Water filtration is slowly but surely eliminating the need for purchasing water bottles, as water filtration system owners are choosing to tote around their own refillable water bottle as they go about their day. However, even these most conscious of consumers can be caught at a lunch or dinner where they are forced to purchase a plastic water bottle. Plastic water bottles are usually convenient and cheap and more often than not, ensure consumers that they are drinking clean and purified water. However, what happens when reports come back from select bottled water companies reporting unsafe or unclean water?
The Environmental Working Group recently released analyzed reports documenting bottled water companies water purity and delivering the three best bottled water companies to buy from, as well as the six worse. The most surprising finding in researching these companies water supply and water filtration systems was the fact that 20 percent failed the transparency test, another 20 refused to disclose where their water actually came from and a whopping 32 percent refused to disclose information on the treatment of their water.
The bottled companies documented as the six worse brands to stay away from are as follows:
Whole Foods Italian Still Mineral Water
Sahara Premium Drinking Water
Cumby's Spring Water
O Water Sport Electrolyte Enhanced Purified Drinking Water
Market Basket Natural Spring Water
Vintage Natural Spring Water
Iso Pure Water encourages consumers to be water smart and water safe in their choices of consuming clean water. Water filtration systems not only ensure clean and purified water but also are eco-friendly as they keep plastic water bottles out of landfills. If purchasing a plastic water bottle is a must, stay away from the above six brands.
