CHECK THAT BOTTLED WATER
In its new report "Take Back the Tap," Food and Water Watch researchers look at the booming business of bottled water, which surpassed soda in sales in 2016. The group finds nearly 64 percent of bottled water comes from municipal taps and that it cost almost two-thousand times as much as tap water and four times as much as gasoline. Patty Lovera with Food and Water Watch says bottled-water companies target demographics through advertising.
Bottled-water companies contend their water is safer.
