Bottled Water and the Overflowing Nanny State

From the Competitive Enterprise Institute:  “Bottled Water and the Overflowing Nanny State: How Misinformation Erodes Consumer Freedom”

After years of promoting bottled water as an environmentally friendly, healthy alternative to tap water, environmental activists have turned against this product they once favored. Such an about-face alone should make everyone wary of the claims now being lobbed at bottled water. Like past contrived environmental panics, this one is just that—a contrived panic over nothing of substance. Plastic bottles used to transport various types of water are not going to make us sick, they are not a significant contributor to global warming, and they are highly energy efficient.
