DO YOU BUY bottled water – or will you only go for it out of the tap?
For some people, bottled water is a handy way to hydrate on the go, while others think it’s a waste of money when you can just buy a reusable container and fill it from the tap.
The Food Safety Authority has released its latest statistics on how safe bottled water is, which show that 2 per cent of samples failed microbiological standards last year.
That was a drop of 5 per cent since 2007, but four of the 748 samples contained the presence of E.coli and/or Enterococci, while others showed signs of poor hygiene during the bottling process.
So today, we ask – do you buy bottled water?
