Some thoughts after hearing an NPR segment on the radio...


I drink...

8(10.7%)
bottled water.
12(16.0%)
filtered water (Brita, Pur, etc.).
6(8.0%)
other.
2(2.7%)

I prefer...

tap water.
18(24.0%)
bottled water.
31(41.3%)
filtered water.
21(28.0%)
other.
5(6.7%)

Do you drink a particular kind of bottled water (if and when you drink it)?

Yes, I stick to one brand exclusively.
9(12.2%)
Yes, I tend to get a certain kind.
23(31.1%)
Not really.
28(37.8%)
No, I never think about which brand of water I am buying/drinking.
14(18.9%)

70% of all water bottles are not recycled. It takes about a fourth of the size of your water bottle in oil to get that water from the source to you. Do those facts bother you?

Yes
39(54.2%)
No
26(36.1%)
Other
7(9.7%)

Instead of buying water bottles, would you consider buying a reusable one?

Yes
59(79.7%)
No
10(13.5%)
Other
5(6.8%)

In your opinion, is there an health risk to drinking tap/bottled/filtered water? And which one is it and what is it?

Yes
26(36.1%)
No
40(55.6%)
Other
6(8.3%)

Do you reuse your water bottles (the disposable kind)?

Yes
50(66.7%)
No
24(32.0%)
Other
1(1.3%)

Anything else you'd like to say about the topic?
