Mono Lake
Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta The cleanest-looking water isn't necessarily the healthiest. Sometimes the greatest danger caused by drinking bottled water can't be seen, tasted, or even smelled. Municipal water utilities are required to provide public reports of test results whereas bottled water makers are not. Harm to Environment Recycling Process Connection to the Class According to the Container Recycling Institute, in the U.S. alone, more than 67 million plastic water bottles are discarded each day. Filtered Water Filters generally remove impurities but natural minerals in the water as well. Sources Cnn.com 5election.com green-blog.org tayromanowski.wordpress.com Lakes
Large wells. Most bottled water IS tap water. According to the National Research Defense Council, 40% of bottled water is derived from tap water. Coca-Cola's Dasani & Pepsi's Aquafina are 2 of the major bottled water companies using tap water as their "filtered" bottled water. The Environmental Working Group found that nearly 200 popular water bottle brands less than 2% reveal 3 important facts that affect our safety:
1. water source
2. purification methods
3. chemical pollutants in each bottle Tap water isn't bad for you. The Federal Government requires tap water to be regularly inspected for bacteria & toxic chemicals under the Environmental Protection Agency 400 times a month. According to a California study, more than 1 billion water bottles are winding up in the trash in CA each year. H2Ohh?? Survey shows that 35% of bottled water drinkers think that it is safer than tap water. In 2007, 16 million gallons of oil were consumed to make plastic water bottles. 1.5 million barrels of oil were needed to make those bottles. The plastics used in bottled waters are made in petrochemical plants. The bottles we are drinking water from are made with polyethylene (PET), a derivative from crude oil. Polyethylene Terephtalate (PET) is found in soda bottles, water bottles, cooking oil bottles. Concerns are leaching antimony and phthalates into liquids. Antimony is the sulfide mineral stibnite. Phthalates is added to plastic to make it flexible. Antimony and phthalates create air and water pollution. By: Anna Fonseca, Corina Martinez & Viviana Ordaz Vitamin Water Vitamin water contains high fructose, corn syrup, artificial colors, additives, preservatives, & caffeine. Distilled water is used to produce them. Distilled water causes health problems in the long-run because its minerals are evaporated out. Empty plastic water bottles have become a major contributor to worldwide pollution. An Environmental Working Group test uncovered 38 contaminants in 10 brands of bottled water, including DBPs, nitrate, caffeine, arsenic, Tylenol, bacteria, & industrial chemicals. Bottled water represents the fastest growing segment of the beverage industry with annual sales exceeding $11 billion. Bottled water can be damaged by toxic chemicals like Bisphenol-A (BPA) which is leached from into your water. BPA can cause cancerous cells in your body. These are the same results when leaving your water bottle in your car. The International Bottled Water Association claims that regulation by the FDA is as demanding as the regulation of the EPA of tap water. The 2011 report from the National Post-Consumer Plastic Recyclers showed that 28.9% of plastic bottles were recycled. In the late 1800's and by 1904, adding chlorine to drinking water became the standard in water treatment. Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) is the third most widely used plastic and it causes health problems including cancer, endocrine disruption, neurological damage, birth defects and impaired child development, and reproductive and immune system damage. Filters in the home use carbon, which is also known as activated charcoal.The carbon molecules in filters attract minerals and some toxic chemicals. waterbenefitshealth.com bottledwater.org ezinearticles.com IBWA.org www.healthybuilding.net In recent years, the number of U.S.
plastics recycling business has nearly tripled.
More than 1,600 businesses are involved
