  1. My tap water tastes like chlorine. It’s not a nice taste. I use a Brita pitcher & it’s no problem to change the filter every three months. I also buy cases of bottled water because the meds I’m on for my bipolar disorder make me wicked thirsty & I take a bottle of water everywhere I go. I have a bottle of water next to my bed so I can grab a mouthful of water whenever I wake up. I used to use a glass but my cat Radar would push it off the nightstand so a bottle works better. I drink LOTS of water, I always have.

    Because I live in NY state, there’s a 5 cent deposit on water bottles, so I keep them & take them back for the cash redemption. I usually take back four garbage bags full at a time, which is $8.

    I don’t think it’s some kind of conspiracy to make Americans buy bottled water. A lot of us live in cities & towns where the water tastes less than nice. Or we live in cities where the pipes are made of lead. So it’s in our best interests to do something about the water we put into our bodies & the bodies of our children.

    I pay a water bill every quarter, so I have a leg in this argument.
