Bottled Water Boom Appears Tapped Out

Bottled Water Boom Appears Tapped Out

"Sales of bottled water have fallen for the first time in at least five years, assailed by wrathful environmentalists and budget-conscious consumers, who have discovered that tap water is practically free," wrote Ylan Q. Mui of The Washington Post.

Wenonah Hauter, executive director of Food & Water Watch, told the reporter, "I thought we'd never be able to impact sales of bottled water, and all of a sudden it's really gained momentum."

Hauter also reported, "The containers are also available online for about $20 each. Sales have been strong," according to Mui.
