Time to Turn Back to the Tap?

Did you know that:

Bottled water costs as much as $10 per gallon compared to less than a penny per gallon for tap waters?

Making bottles to meet Americans' demand for bottled water required the equivalent of more than 17 million barrels of oil in 2006, enough fuel for more than 1 million United States cars for a year, and generated more than 2.5 million tons of carbon dioxide?

96% of bottled water is sold in single-size polyethylene terephthalate plastic bottles, which end up in city trash cans rather than recycling bins?
