Reasons to Stop Drinking Bottled Water | Care2 Healthy Living

When I lived with my mother I drank tap water - it tasted pure, it was well water, when tested it showed a few (natural) things in it, but nothing too bad and for a while we had a filter, but it was a bit too costly to keep up so we let it go. Now, I live on a city water supply and it tastes exactly like Chlorine and it is AWFUL so I drink bottled water. I try to keep bottle waste down and have them saved for recycling (though some turn into rabbit toys since they like pushing them around :P)... but the cost of filtration systems that actually WORK for removing the chemical taste is very high. Brita faucet filters don't do enough. And yep Nestle pure life is actually the brand I buy. When I have my own home and can afford a house-wide filtration system, that of course will be the chosen option.
