Thoughts while shaving

Hello!!!...What part of this don’t we understand? No matter how many times we hear it, it continues to fall on deaf ears…bottled water versus tap water!!!. We are spending an average of $3 a day (much more from vending machines, etc. ) for bottled  water or $1100 a year and we are also paying city/town for tap water that we don’t use that’s just as pure, more pure in some cases . Some bottled water comes directly from a tap. If tap water isn’t an option, a water filter costs pennies a day. One of the arguments for bottled water is the size and convenience of the bottle. We can fill a bottle with tap water and have the same size and convenience!  Another consideration, of course, is the impact on the environment with the millions of plastic bottles that don’t get recycled. Does this “rocket science” need further explanation?
