Also, it’s tap water with a label

Mother Jones today has one more reason not to buy bottled water: It’s coming from the most drought-afflicted regions of the country.

I’m not saying never buy it. If it’s hot, you’re thirsty, and there are no water fountains nearby, it can make┬ásense to spend $1.50 for a bottle of water. It’s healthier than Coke, after all.

But┬áseriously, if you’re buying it more than occasionally, stop. A little bit of planning (and filtering if the tapwater in your area doesn’t taste great) saves you money and doesn’t take water from where people actually need it.
