Comments Off on China’s bottled water companies are bottling melting Tibetan glaciers and selling it for a premium price

In China, like most other developed countries, premium bottled water represents a hefty market share. This isn’t a vending machine beverage we’re talking about; most of that is just tap water anyway. We’re talking about something much different and, if you believe the marketing department, better. Think artesian springs, think crystal clear babbling brooks, think Mount Everest. Wait, what? That’s right. Tibetan officials are encouraging companies to tap Himalayan glaciers for premium water, and China thinks that sounds like a stellar idea.

INFOGRAPHIC: Why you should stop buying bottled water

Comments Off on INFOGRAPHIC: Why you should stop buying bottled water

Americans buy a staggering amount of bottled water every year. Not only does that bottled water consumption add to a wasteful water footprint —the average U.S. consumer uses as much as 1,320 gallons per day—but it’s also the source of tons of landfill trash. Buying bottled water isn’t economically sound either. Even though half of most bottled waters come from the tap, some water brands charge up to 500 times more than the cost of tap. Wheels for Wishes put together an infographic to examine the many reasons why Americans need to reduce their bottled water footprint.

Big Water fights plans to reduce plastic pollution in National Parks

Comments Off on Big Water fights plans to reduce plastic pollution in National Parks

We’re already fed up with bottled water companies for sucking the water out of California and other drought-threatened areas, but this latest news is really one for the history books. In a last minute amendment to a House spending bill , the insane notion has been proposed that bottled water companies should have a legally protected right to sell their wares inside the boundaries of National Parks. At this time, it’s uncertain what the chances are of that language making it into law, but the fight between Big Water and the National Park Service is a competitive one, and it’s clearly not over yet.

Duke Energy to provide bottled water in North Carolina where water is too polluted to drink

Comments Off on Duke Energy to provide bottled water in North Carolina where water is too polluted to drink

More than a year after a broken stormwater pipe leaked dangerous coal ash into North Carolina’s Dan River, area residents are still faced with limited access to clean water. Eighty-seven property owners in North Carolina have received letters from the state’s Department of Environmental and Natural Resources informing them that their well water is no longer safe to drink or cook with . Recent testing found that groundwater supplies are polluted with toxic byproducts from the 2014 spill. Coal ash in the water is responsible for unsafe levels of chemicals such as vanadium—which causes respiratory problems—and the carcinogen hexavalent chromium to seep into groundwater. Duke Energy has not yet conceded that their pits are the source of the pollution, but the company has offered to provide bottled water to households that have received a notice from the state.
