sooo everyone is always debating on whether or not bottled water is better than tap? what do you think? do you guys drink bottled because you don't like the taste of tap or do you drink bottled because you think it's healthier? does anyone think that tap water is better? i for one drink tap water more because it decreases the amount of plastic that is used. even though it's recyclable a lot of people don't take the extra step to put in the bin so it gets thrown in the trash. what do you guys prefer and why? do you recycle?

Bottled! the water here is just to taste to drink. it always has things floating in it and we have a filter. its just nasty. so i think bottled water. it does not have to be spring water its just clearer tap water.

yea you drink dasani right?? a lot people drink bottled water because they think it comes from a natural source but what they don't realize is that most bottled is really just tap that's been re-filtered.

I prefer bottled. I just think it tastes better. There is a definite odor to tap water too....but they say it is fine? I feel better drinking bottled. However, I drink tap too. I do recycle.

Yeah i keep up on where my water comes from. i know its just coke water lol. it comes from one of their plants. i do like figi water it is very soft and does not leave a fast in my mouth. i also like my water at room temp. i will drink cold water but thats only if i have to. and i wont but bottled water over ice i think that defeats the whole idea of drinking bottled water
