1. Bottled water is glorified tap water at 100 times the cost
But hii ni obvious

2. Many bottled waters contain toxins like BPA
Water companies increasingly use BPA-free plastic,but laced into plastic bottles are other
chemicals that can seep out if bottles are exposed to heat/microwave or sit around for a long time.

3. Bad for marine life

etc, etc

Ongezea hapo chini with some scientific backing or propaganda

I have my own water(bottled) company na Hata hiyo lugha unaongea sielewi...before you start commercializing water you must have a clearance certificate from KEBS ,take a water sample to their labs... Together with your bottles
With or without KEBS it is absolute meaningless. I doubt anybody here goes looking for the 'brand of quality' when buying products. You just ask a friend, "Hi maji imewai kufanya uhare?":D:D

BPA stands for bisphenol A. BPA is an industrial chemical that has been used to make certain plastics and resins since the 1960s.
BPA is found in polycarbonate plastics and epoxy resins. Polycarbonate plastics are often used in containers that store food and beverages, such as water bottles.

Niko kwa industry ya plastic cans pia, will have to shift focus to glass cans

Plastic bottles and cans should be banned just like polythene bags

Bits of plastic get into our food from containers. The process is called "leaching" or "migration."
The chemical industry acknowledges that you can't avoid this transfer

Heating food in plastic seems to increase the amount that's transferred to food. Migration also increases when plastic touches fatty, salty, or acidic foods.

Two suspects are under active investigation: bisphenol A and a class of chemicals called phthalates.

BPA disrupt reproductive development and function in laboratory animals. Levels in humans were thought to be too low to be of concern, but more recent research has challenged that perception

Higher levels of phthalates in the body have been linked to low sperm countand quality in adult men. In one highly publicized study, pregnant women with higher levels of phthalates were more likely to bear baby boys with subtle genital changes -- namely, a slightly shorter distance between the anus and scrotum.

One large, well-conducted study in humans showed that people who had high levels of BPA in the urine had a higher rate of diabetes, heart disease, and liver toxicity.

Nonesense. I work at a Mineral Water Bottling Company na I take a walk thru the production plant...hio purification process and the water is clean. hadi the Lab tests we do before the batches are released to market.
Any issues with the water like Greening etc are always on the end user's fault...like exposing the bottles to direct sunlight for prolonged periods and a dirty unserviced dispenser etc.
