Coody said the water that comes straight from the tap is just as good and not nearly as expensive.
While I'm not one of those who waste their money buying bottled water, I do filter it. That seems to take out the nasty taste.
Consumers are choosing bottled water because they think it's safer or purer than tap water, when in reality regulations on municipal water are more stringent, Coody said.
Then there are the consumers who think the city water tastes crappy and prefer to drink something that tastes good.
Coody's announcement comes during a national movement to reduce the consumption of bottled water.
I want to know why is Coody picking on water bottles? Why isn't he trying to reduce the consumption of beer and cola bottles. They have the same environmental impact as the water bottle. Why this unfair persecution of water? Water is healthier to drink than beer and cola, so why not go after them instead?
