Tap water or bottled water?

"Americans have gotten the message that water is a lot healthier than soda, and the evidence is everywhere: plastic water bottles stuffed into backpacks, gym bags, and all too often, tossed empty on the side of the road." People argue that bottled water should be limited, and everyone should drink tap water to limit the amount of bottles litered on the street. I think if we go back to tap water instead, more people will make the change to bottled unhealthy beverages, for example soda. Even though people may be litering water bottles, at least its water bottles on the streets and not soda bottles, which is one big step in our society of becoming healthier.

We were talking about this in geography class and we agreed that you should have a choice. Just recycle it! Don't be lazy. And more recycling should be available.
