This is an editorial published in St. Thomas University's student newspaper. I think these folks have nailed it!

By Greg Rodger & Mitch Messom - The Aquinian

The newest eco-fad to hit campus is the crusade against bottle water. Organizations and community groups (we use community loosely) such as the Council of Canadians, Students for Sustainability and NB Media Coop, among others, are more than ready to battle the real and imaginary problems with bottled water. These groups argue that bottled water is a threat to the environment and human rights but they are not justified in these beliefs.

A New York Times article was published yesterday in a series they are running called "Toxic Waters." As anti-bottled water groups continue to make claims about tap water being "just as good" as bottled water, the unintended consequence for them is the re-examination of true quality of tap water. It is likely the continuing education of the American consumer on the quality of tap water will help the bottled water in the long run.
