The amount of oil needed to make those bottles equals about 15 million barrels a year, or enough to fuel 100,000 cars for a year (source: Earth Policy Institute) and switching to tap water saves you money (~$.01 per gallon of tap vs. $1.00-$8.00 per gallon bottled). Public tap water must also meet more stringent Environmental Protection Agency requirements in comparison to bottled water. (source: mwra.state.ma.us)
