Whatever the taste, whatever the texture we are all looking for clean refreshing delicious, pure, clean water to keep us healthy – true or false for you? But sometimes, what we buy in the shop may not be what we think it is. One company has admitted that they sell tap water instead of spring water and they need to change the label!
We’ve been cheated!
Only a few months ago this alarming news leaked out:
The Pepsi company admitted that its Aquafina bottled water is actually not purified,
clean water nor spring water, but simply ordinary tap water!
The company will now be forced to change the labells of the brand to reflect that it is just tap water.
How does it make you feel that all these months you’ve been wasting money?
People aren’t stupid any more!
Many people out there are educated these days and actually choose bottled water
because they are worried about the quality of tap water. Everyone knows most
tap waters have chlorine, pharmaceuticals, contraceptive pills, hormones,
some even fluoride in some parts of the UK., Europe and the US.
Sadly, we are now learning that in many cases, bottled water is
actually not any better than tap water.
So effectively you might have been buying a very expensive tap water.
Water companies under scrutiny
There is an advocacy group called, “Corporate Accountability International”
which has been checking the contents of bottled water and putting pressure
on companies to actually stop their misleading and false adverts.
Did you know that Aquafina is among the top selling water brands in the world?
May well not be now…! After this news they well might see a reduction in sales.
Personally, it really makes me feel like a fool when a piece of news like this comes out.
The dishonesty of companies
The corporate responsibility team is currently investigating the Coca-Cola’s Dasani
bottled water for incorrect ad promotion.
Dasani rejects that their product is simply a faucet water.
Coca-Cola spokeswoman Diana Garza Ciarlante said that they
don’t think that costumers are puzzled about the Dasani water
and where it comes from. The label plainly says that it is purified water.
As reported last year, a significant water supplier Niagra Bottling revealed
that one of their springs was polluted by E-Coli, triggering several bottled
water companies to recall their products.
Lots of people are concerned about transport and storage. The plastic bottles sitting at 140 degrees
in a hot truck lorry or behind the shop window with the sun shining on every day…
and that may have an impact on the quality of the water.
Therefore, it is typically advised to keep water in glass bottles or biodegradable bottles.
The plastic waste has always been a big worry of mine.
What about you?
Another thing about tap water: it has to travel via the endless
gorge of often 90 degree angled pipes to reach our kitchens.
What is good quality of water these days?
In my opinion, the best water should be as close as to natural,
mountain, spring water – pure and clean with all the attributes
spring water offers. That is: having the mineral content, being
live not dead as mentioned above where it’s trapped in pipes,
having the signature of the earth when it passes through,
and it tastes refreshing, delicious.
