Bottled Versus Tap Water: Environmental Impact

Number of Pages 3

3 pages in length. Paying for water was as foreign a concept fifty years ago as traveling by jet-propelled body packs is now in the twenty-first century, however, the quality of today's tap water has declined to the point where bottled water has become a safer and more palatable option that consumers have responded to over the past three decades. Yet the environmental disadvantages of choosing bottled water over tap have been proven quite significant due to the necessary steps required to reach consumers. As Jungbluth (2005) found, it is not so much the content - as in carbonated or plain - that makes a greater environmental impact as it is the manufacturing and delivery aspects.
