This seems a delicate situation.

There a lot of options on how you want to filter your tap at home. It’s just a matter of choosing what’s right for you without contributing too much to trash buildup. With regards to cost, its obvious that bottled water costs more since you have to pay for bottles you’ll have to throw away.

The amount of plastic that is generated from all those plastic bottles and the pollution caused from transporting the bottles is ridiculous. I don’t see the point in buying bottled water unless the water where you live is literally undrinkable…

When I was in Rome in Europe on my holidays this summer (http://www.oh-holidays.com/en/) I noticed everywhere that there were public drinking fountains on literally every corner… I thought this was really good and now I’m wondering why we don’t have more public drinking fountains. If people know they can get free and frequent access to water when they’re out and about, maybe they won’t feel the need to buy so much bottled water…

With health in consideration, purified water is preferred over tap water. But then, bottled water produces tons of garbage plastics a year. California’s waste management laws promote the management of all materials to their highest and best use, and protect public health and safety, natural resources, and the environment, in partnership with all Californians. Thus, we encourage waste prevention and reuse. So instead of the plastic bottles, thermos and glass bottles are preferred. There are low cost home water purifiers (carbon filters, reverse osmosis) that will turn most tap water sparking fresh at a fraction of bottled water’s cost.

For those of us that prefer contaminant free water from the tap, I find using a refillable glass bottle and a bottleless water cooler with reverse osmosis is a very smart solution. It purifies tap water at the point of use. This eliminates any elements of tap that are contaminants or objectionable. It is the future of modern drinking water service and the green alternative to bottled water.
