No to bottled water

The United Church of Canada is urging members to avoid bottled water, saying it is the “thin edge” of water privatization, part of a larger trend of huge companies controlling water resources to the detriment of everyone else. Plus, they add, municipal water is often healthier because impurities leach from the plastic bottles into the water and the bottles themselves are just more plastic clutter that ends up in garbage dumps.

    the company bothers to check for guardia?
