Some myths are fun to learn about and share with your friends. Others that are entirely untrue could inappropriately affect your behavior.
For example, we'd like to dispel the myths around bottled water, as they may be keeping you from enjoying the award-winning taste and essential electrolytes in Eldorado Natural Spring Water.
Misconceptions About Bottled Water
The internet is a big “place” full of great information. But there is also a huge amount of misinformation floating around out there. And unfortunately, it can be hard to tell the two apart.
Four of the myths about bottled water that get shared most frequently are:
- “Water bottles harm the environment because they can’t be recycled.”
Fact: Water bottles are fully recyclable*—including the cap and label. They don’t end up in waterways, clutter the landscape, or even contribute to the growth of landfills when people make the minimal effort required to recycle them. When handled properly, plastic water bottles are part of an efficient and effective circular system.
*Our bottles are made of 100% recycled plastic.
- “Bottled water is very expensive.”
Fact: You can certainly find “upscale” waters with ridiculously high price tags. But the best bottled water, like Eldorado Natural Spring Water, has the characteristics you should be looking for (great taste, natural electrolytes, etc.) at a very affordable price. It’s especially so when purchased in larger quantities. The cost of bottled water shouldn’t make you think twice about a purchase. If it does, you’re buying the wrong product!
- “Bottled water isn’t regulated and controlled like tap water.”
Fact: This falsehood sometimes comes up when someone is trying to decide whether tap water or bottled water is the right choice, and they ask, “Is bottled water safer than tap water?” The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulates bottled water quality, just like it does other foods and beverages, in the same way that the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulates tap water.
- “Spring water is often just falsely labeled tap water.”
Fact: To be sure, some bottled water sources are better than others. For example, we’re very proud of the amazing artesian spring that filters our water through a thick layer of sandstone before providing it to us. That said, we can all be confident that if any company tried to pass off tap water as spring water, the FDA would quickly discover that deceptive practice and stop it.
