We've been talking some about the relative cleanliness, or lack of cleanliness, of U.S. drinking water. But did you know that some of the most popular bottled water is just tap water put into bottles? (They filter it first, but still.) According to a few recent studies, while people cite the safety of bottled water as the number one reason they choose it over tap water, bottled water is potentially more unsafe. Congress has now sent letters to 13 bottled water companies asking them to disclose their water sources so that they can potentially be more stringently regulated.Pepsi and Nestle both disclose that Aquafina and Pure Life come from "public water sources," which isn't totally clear, but which is better than Coke, which wont say where they get the water to make Dasani, even though we all know it's just tap water.So, help pressure Coke into more full discloser with this auto-email form asking the company's CEO to say where the water they bottle is from.Thanks, Jaime.
