    Bottled water is big business. But in terms of sustainability, bottled water is a dry well. It’s costly, wasteful and distracts from the brass ring of public health: the construction and maintenance of safe municipal water systems.

    Want some solid reasons to kick the bottled water habit? We’ve rounded up five to get you started.

    I was just wondering the same thing. Seems like a lot of blogs have these interesting fact sheets, but not a whole lot of references. Here are a few, not in reference to information above, but just about water bottle manufacturing, consumption, pollution, and life cycle in general. I just did a paper on this topic:

    There is a lot of really solid data here from reputable sources. I try to avoid independent studies, just cause you never know who is behind the funding of these studies, but not all are bias. Also beware of hard data that has been that been put into analogous perspective, its easy to skew numbers and either minimalize facts or exaggerate them.
    I hope these references help. Happy researching!!

    PET bottles have one superhuman power that glass and metal bottles/cups/containers simply cannot provide — it is UV transparent. Tough and transparent and light are exactly what is needed for life saving in disaster struck areas. PET bottles and UV light are the essential ingredients that make water safe enough to drink. Look up SODIS or http://www.cdc.gov/safewater/solardisinfection.html . If you were unaware of this, count your blessings.

    No batteries required. Sometimes the bad guy is not who he seems.
    If I go camping{and don’t have a lifestraw} a PET bottle and a used saree{bet you didn’t know about those as well} will be on my packing list.
