In today’s day and age where time is money and where everything and anything is important when time is consider, people will start to spend extra money when it is not needed to save a little bit of time. One of the instances where people do this is when they buy bottled water. I have nothing wrong with people buying bottled water, but there are many reasons why you should stop buying it and go for a cheaper long run alternative.
So, what’s the problem with buying bottled water? Well, for starters you’re paying for water in your home and if you’re going out and buying bottled water you are just adding to your water bill in a roundabout way and you’re not using the water you pay for at home enough. The money that you waste buying bottled water can add up quickly and it can get away from you in a hurry. You should consider a cheaper and more effective alternative instead of bottled water to keep down your expenses and keep your body healthy. One such alternative is buying a water filter which will provide you with just as fresh of water that you would get from any bottled water company and save you an enormous amount of money in the long run. The best part is that you can then refill over and over and not be spending more than your monthly water bill.
The next thing you need to consider when buying water bottles is the effect it has on the environment. Sure some of them can be recycled but some cannot. For this reason you should invest in a plastic water bottle that is reusable over and over. The best part about this is that you can buy them where they are much larger than your average water bottle and you can refill them as much as you like and not cause any sort of waste in the process. You’re saving money and saving the environment at the same time which is a really good thing. Water bottles may be convenient and they may seem relatively inexpensive at the time, but there impact on the environment and on your wallet overtime can be drastic.
The last and most important reason that you shouldn’t buy bottled water is that you can’t trust them. That’s right; you can’t trust them as far as you can throw them. They will tell you that the water is purified and that it doesn’t come straight out of the tap, but there have been multiple instances where bottled water companies have been found to be using water straight from your tap. If you use your own water filter from your home and purify your own water you will know that it is indeed purified and you will immediately be able to taste the difference from your normal tap water as compared to the newly purified water. In this way you will know that you are getting what you paid for and if you don’t see a change with the filter you can always take it back and get a better one and keep trying until you are satisfied with the difference. That is something you can’t do with bottled water and is something you should strongly consider in the future before you decide to buy that bottled water again.
