Do you know where bottled water comes from? Probably not, right? Well, you're not alone. Bottled water giants like Pepsi, Coke, and Nestlé don't readily disclose the sites and sources of the water that's bottled.

I filter my own tap water. Have for almost a year. We bought our last case of water last summer and are still reusing the bottles form it. I also reuse the gallon jugs I bought last summer as part of my hurrican stock. I know that the only bottle water I could trust is Poland Spring from Maine. I have received that water free of cost when growing up there. I want to think that the spring is still the source. Coming from corporate America Pepsi's label and tactics do not surprise me. It is about money, not truthful advertising.

Want to talk about rip-off? Poland Springs is owned by Nestle. They buy up old farmhouses in Maine and because of antiquated laws, are allowed to pump hundreds of thousands of gallons of Maine's water out of the ground and into their bottles to be sold. People of Maine get nothing and there is no protection right now to safeguard from strip-mining our water in this way. Without water, we cannot exist. They are legally stealing our water on a daily basis!!! This is a crime and should be stopped!

I buy bottled water because it tastes better than the water coming out of my faucet, and I'm more likely to drink it from the bottle. I have never believed it was from a Mt. Spring anywhere....but I did figure it had to be healthy enough to pass inspection to be shipped out. Noted

noted. its a scam that company's are runing. they need to say where the water is coming from. consumers have the right to know. I filter my own water. we are so blessed that we can choose if we want bottle water or tap water. how truly blessed are we.!!!! when so many countries do not have a chose they go with out water. & when they do come across water. God only Knows whom they have to share it with. or what. i count my blessings everyday. & making the company's richer are not one of them. peace & safe water drinking to all.

Anyone can purify/distill water - it's the safest thing to do.

I don't buy bottled water as I presume most of it is just slightly purified regular water. I have bottles & just fill them with water from home. That water has gone through our filtration system & then the Britta filter. Tastes much better anyhow.

I knew all about bottled water. A majority is nowhere fresh anything water. But our water in Maine does come from underground and is pure and clean. Sadly, I must say that Judy E. is correct. Nestle is another greedy thief. And guess who is the lawyer????? Please read this article. Jennie B. you will faint. . I don't think I can get this to be a link, so please just paste into your browser. Thanks.

Cheers for making me more aware my friend!!! Corruption for the sake of a dollar huh? Some crooked people out there. Appreciate the water we have here in New Zealand - not really any need for bottled water in my part of the country and am so thankful.
Noted and spreading the word!!!!!
