Which is Safer?
Concerns over drugs, chemicals, and contaminants in tap water has prompted people all over the world to buy bottled water. Recent studies have shown that 3 out of 10 households in Canada drink bottled water at home.
It’s estimated that 2.4 billion litres of bottled water were sold in Canada alone last year; about 68 litres per capita. In fact, bottled water sales have surpassed milk and beer sales in North America, representing a $170 billion industry.
But is bottled water necessarily safer or healthier? A recent investigation compiled by CBC News and reported by Kazi Stastna, provides a well-researched 7 point comparison of water quality, health risks, sustainability and impact on the environment.
At Puroxi, we maintain that proper treatment of an existing water source will provide safe, clean, clear, and nutritonal water, as well as many benefits, without affecting the quality and sustainability of our environment.
