Where Does Your Bottled Water Come From?
A recent article, published in USA Today , reports on a comprehensive survey of bottled water brands across the United States. As you can see below, the majority of the most popular bottled water brands received very poor scores. These scores represent the amount of information regarding the source and purity of the water that the labeling on the bottle reveals. Remember, your municipality is required by regulations to treat your tap water, while bottled water companies fall under no such regulation. Take a look at the scores listed below, is your brand of choice on this list?
- Pure Life Purified Water (Nestle), B
- Arrowhead Mountain Spring Water (Nestle), C
- Aquafina Purified Drinking Water (Pepsi), D
- Dasani Purified Water (Coca-Cola), D
- Deer Park Natural Spring Water (Nestle), D
- Ice Mountain Natural Spring Water (Nestle), D
- Ozarka Natural Spring Water (Nestle), D
- Poland Spring Natural Spring Water (Nestle), D
- Zephyrhills Natural Spring Water (Nestle), D
- Crystal Geyser Natural Alpine Spring Water (CG Roxane), F
If you brand choice is on this list, it may be in your interest to consider alternatives to bottled water.
Blue Reserve’s mission is to displace our national dependency on bottled water by bringing to market sustainable and affordable water purification technology. Through a steadfast commitment to environmental stewardship and corporate responsibility, we will build a healthier, safer, and more sustainable world.
Blue Reserve’s 9-stage purification system is designed to deliver the healthiest, freshest drinking water. Bottled water can be stale, mineral depleted, and acidic. Moreover, the large jugs of water sit in a warehouse for months before they are delivered, during which BPA can leach out of the plastic and into the water. Blue Reserve water is purified on-site, right inside our bottleless water cooler for on-demand consumption. Our guarantee is “better than bottled quality” and we allow all interested clients to try our water cooler risk-free, at no obligation, to taste for themselves.
If you are still drinking bottled water in your office or home and live in Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, or Rhode Island, give Blue Reserve a call to learn more about our office bottle-less water cooler service.
