Water bottles are a waste. I installed a filter under the sink and change the cartridge every six months. Get a refillable bottle and chill the tap water in the fridge. Save a couple hundred bucks a year and avoid the disposal problem.

Water is the healthy drink but disposable water bottles are damaging to our environment in so many ways (production, trasportation, waste, etc.). Do everyone a favor and buy yourself a filter and a reusable bottle.

Water doesn't wake me up the same way a good Coke does. GOD BLESS COCA COLA!!!!

I think the ease of carrying water along may be part of the reason for water's ascendancy. With bottled water available everywhere soda is sold, it is more available than ever before as a take along drink. I do abhor the waste associated with all those bottles in our trash, but if that is the price for drinking healthier maybe we should address the disposal issues separate from the availability issue.

SLC gal- try coffee or tea. It's way better for you than coke, and gives you the perk you need. If it the WOW you're worried about, try Yerba Matte. I think it's considered herbal, so you should be fine. My neighbor drinks it, and he is the YM pres.

I don't like to drink out of any cancer causing plastic containers. Is beer the only drink in glass bottles. I like the good ole fashioned water facet.
