Goodbye tap water, hello mineral/bottled water!

Nowadays, we are drawn to getting used to drinking bottled water with the thought that we are definitely drinking safe and toxin-free water as compared to water flowing from the faucet without any assurance that it was well filtered. Although costly than the tap water, mineral/bottled water can be bought conveniently anywhere. But at times, we have to reconsider also that there would be instances that some are prepared with certain amount of contamination. Nonetheless, more often than not, I would still prefer this well-processed product. How about you?

I do not have a choice. I drink both tap water and bottled water depending on the circumstances and places I find myself.

A lot of bottle water is just tap water they run through a filter and sell to you at a hyped up price. I consider it a total waste of money, if you're so concerned you should just buy a brita filter or something similar to put over the faucet at home. It's the same thing.

If I am only sure that tap water is clean like the water in Davao City, I will still go for tap water. Mineral or bottled water is safer yet there are already chemicals added to it. I still love the water in our province that flowing under the tree. It tastes good and safe.
