Argument A: Water, other than air, is the world's most abundant natural resource. For the developed world and some of the developing world, it is not hard to come by, but rather is practically free and always accessible. So where is that $1.50 going when you buy a bottle of water? The water within is worth next to nothing. You're paying for a piece of plastic that you're probably going to throw in the garbage so that the earth can break it down slowly over the next several thousand years. Argument B: Where I work, a bottle of Aquafina water is $2 CDN, which I've come to notice as the standard price these days for 591 mL bottles. Something else I noticed today? The price of gas. 591 mL of water is $2 taxes in. 1 L of gas is $0.65 taxes in. So, to balance it out, 1.18 L of bottled water is $4, whereas 1.18 L of gas would come to $0.76. So bottled water is 5.26 times more expensive than gas. How many bottles of water are you drinking per day?
