This slideshow visually compares the costs of bottled water to tap water. The up-front bottle costs run high, but the post-costs to the environment are even more expensive.
What is an Aquifer?
Aquifers are bodies of saturated rock and sediment through which water can move, and they provide 99% of our groundwater. Humans rely on aquifers for most of our drinking water.
