Is It Taste? 20/20 Tests Bottled vs. Tap Water

I often hear people saying that bottled water just “tastes” better and that’s why they buy bins of bottles water. I had seen this 20/20 segment that centered on the taste factor of water. Even I was a bit shocked by the results, so watch and let us know what you think: is there a difference in taste?

The Story of Bottled Water

We wanted to start the year by sharing what we think is the most compelling story on the story of bottled water.  Annie Leonard, the very smart creator of The Story of Stuff, created this video last March in celebration of World Water Day. It was a near-instant viral success being picked up by news outlets including Fast Company and Huffington Post.  Have a look and you’ll see why.

What would you add to the story?

It’s why we’re focused on giving you a better and more beautiful option.

Stop Drinking Bottled Water

It seems easy enough to stop drinking water bottled in plastic, yet, we’re primed for convenience. It’s easy enough to buy a bottle at the convenience store, out at a sporting event, or on a long road trip.  And bottled water marketers are selling you a vision – spring pools of fresh water, mountain streams ripe for crisp, cool, refreshment. It’s a sham. Here’s a great infographic from the creative team at Term Life Insurance.
