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?
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?
I know we like to share infographics, we find their ability to share our consumption in interesting ways helps us all better understand the impact of our plastic water bottle habit. Check out this one below from Do The Reuse Challenge that equates our U.S. water bottle consumption to fueling school buses. No matter how you look at it, we’re way over-consuming plastic.
It’s why we’re focused on giving you a better and more beautiful option.
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.
