When and why did bottled water become popular?
>>
When people thought that it wasn't just tap water.
>>
Spoiled white highschool girls who decided they were too good for drinking fountains and tap water and compete with each other to buy the most overpriced bottled water they can.

When the city water tastes and smells rancid.

>>7325838
During the gap between the time when people discovered that tap water is often fully of horrifying chemicals and the time when filter pitchers and reverse osmosis machines became cheap and readily available.

>>7325838
Because it's cleaner then tap water.

>>

>cheap

>taste better and clean
only if you live in a shithole

when you go to poor countries its kind of essential unless you want a runny arse. Although if i go to the south of England i buy it as their water tastes fucking weird.

tap water come from water table but has to pass by treatment facility , no matter where do you live it's tasteless, whereas mineral water come from natural source and have better taste ( like natural carbonated water).

>do you even?
Dunno for you , but here in France 9L ( 6 bottles) of water cost between 1-3€, whereas soda cost 1.5€ the bottle (1.5L)

> "popular"

yeah, no. Just because 2% of the world drinks bottled water, that doesn't mean it's popular.
>>
>>7328339
>no matter where do you live it's tasteless
Wrong wrong wrong wrong wrong. Once lived in 3 different areas in the same state and the water has tasted wildly different from pleasant to atrocious and metallic

Should environmentalists feel bad for telling everyone they shouldn't be drinking from plastic water bottles after what happened to Flint, Michigan?
>>
>>7325852
At my high school, letters were sent home warning kids to not drink from the fountains because the water was contaminated. Apparently not contaminated enough to forbid us from drinking it, but it sure did taste weird.
>>
When shit like Flint, MI happens, thats why people buy bottled water.

that kind of thing generally doesn't come from the water itself but the human part (canalization,treatment facility ...).Also I've never said that the taste of water doesn't change from a place to another, tap water can usually be neutral or bad. In France 40% of the population doesn't like to drink tap water, because our mineral water taste better (dunno for yours). Moreover I only drink mineral sparkling water ( like 20% of the french) so I've to buy bottled water
>>
some incompetent government workers let ecoli into the water supply near me about 15 years ago .. a lot of people got sick and died and bottled water went crazy
>>
Because tap water can taste absolutely terrible in some places.
>>
I've never needed bottled water. The tap water in my city (coincidentally named Eau Claire) is very clean.
>>
>>7328671
You think the majority of people are aware of that? That evergreen people living in the USA can have tap water that destroys their children's minds and contributes to the total heavy metal load that they'll carry through life?

It's sad as fuck, but there's plenty of places around the United States that have shitty tap water, in some cases literally. Some towns just don't give a shit. The podcast Reveal had a recent enough episode about a town that had ecoli outbreaks and the town people tried to stand up, but a court ruled in the favor of the water suppliers and there hasn't been any improvement in the tap water.

It happens and it's shit.

I live in a Scandinavian country so our tap water is perfect but I buy bottled sparkling water because I stopped buying and drinking soda
>>
>muh tap water
even if you buy a $200 infowars paranoia tier filter that still works out to only 8 cents per gallon. if you buy bottled water you're literally throwing your money away.
