Did you know that over half of the nation’s drinking water contains unregulated contaminants?  This means that you could be drinking tap water that has not been adequately tested for safety standards.  Bottled water isn’t aways the safest water.  Bottled water regulations are actually less stringent than tap water regulations.  What does that mean for you?  Know where your water comes from!  In addition to minimizing plastic bottle usage, go the Environmental Working Group’s website and find out information about the water in your zip code.  You may be surprised at what you find!
