Re: Concord, Massachusetts Bans Sale of Small Water Bottles

I only buy bottled water when I am not at home because I really do not drink sodas. However, I do keep a supply of small bottles and gallons on hand for emergencies. You never know when a weather emergency or something could happen and you need them. So, what do they do for prep scenarios?

We have recycling facilities for juice boxes here!

I have to buy bottled water to use where I am renting because it's a historic area, the city tests the water a few times a year and there is a bit too much lead in the water. The letter from the city explained that, not only the older houses may have lead pipes but also, the city pipes underground are likely still lead.

I need to arrange for the city to come install a filter at the kitchen sink; until then I buy big jugs of water, which is probably unsafe in some way too

Re: Concord, Massachusetts Bans Sale of Small Water Bottles

In most European countries, you have to buy bottled water. I tried drinking from the tap once in Belgium and all I can say is, big mistake!!! I can't even drink the tap water where I live now. I get the most horrible bout of the trots.

How much is gas where you live? It's $3.35 a gallon here and $.99 for water.

The small bottles are convenient for the car. I always have a case there.

I reuse them and freeze half of the bottle so it's always cold at the playground or wherever.

I was told a few years ago by my neighbor, who is the "green-est" human being on the planet that re-using your plastic water bottles is dangerous. Also, that leaving them in the sunlight, even for a minute, releases some kind of chemical that you end up ingesting once you drink it again. I don't know if all that's true, but I'm like you...I re-use my little bottles all the time. I feel guilty if they only get used once and then end up in the recycle bin. I figure they are worth more than once use.

Gas has dropped this past few weeks; it's around 94 cents /litre right now. Whatever that means in gallons ...

Re: Concord, Massachusetts Bans Sale of Small Water Bottles

We can get flats of small water bottles on special for as little as $2.99 for 12 bottles but I'm absolutely certain that water can't be anything but tap water from somewhere. Then there's 'big names' like Fiji and others that are around $2.99 for just one single small bottle. It's all over the place. Really it makes no sense.

Because of the fluoride that they add to tap water, along with the other additives. Fluoride is a sedative. And did u know that estrogen from birth control pills cannot be filtered out of the water? Drink up. I use a Brita filter. That helps some.

In Memphis today I saw prices ranging from $3.09 a gallon to $3.19.

I keep a rotating supply of 1 gallon water jugs under my cabinet. I have 7 now. They say u should keep at least 2 weeks worth. Don't really have that much storage space.
