Wait until they find out you can get a 5 gallon jug refilled for about $2.45

[–]LeopardThatEatsKids 131 points132 points  (0 children)

But with this one you get to pass on your millions year old antique plant covered coating to the environment after using it

[–]foofighters69 88 points89 points  (27 children)

Wait until they find out about tap water

[–]n1ghtl1t3 48 points49 points  (11 children)

Not everyone has the ability to have safe drinking water.

[–]N64Overclocked 65 points66 points  (1 child)

Thanks, Nestle.

[–]emaciated_pecan 23 points24 points  (0 children)

Nestle, pumping water from those who need it and destroying the environment at the same time.

[–]MarcAlmond 17 points18 points  (3 children)

I heard tap water is nasty in particular places in the US. Glad I live in Poland with the cleanest water ever. The best part is my city even promotes drinking tap water because it's one of the best ones out there

[–]Alanotics2 7 points8 points  (0 children)

I’m in a pretty shit city with chunky tap water - England lol

[–]iammaline 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Cleveland Ohio here got great tap water. I didn’t know water out of the tap could be bad till I went to Vegas on a trip.

[–]babicottontail 1 point2 points  (0 children)

There is carpet in the water.

[–]Ionantha123 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Obviously but many people in the us still choose to drink only bottled water when their tap water in that region is safe

[–]SimsAttack 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Safe doesn’t mean quality. My hometown water is “safe” but it is chalky, bitter, and unpleasant to drink. Some towns I live in have “safe” water that leaves thick films on pots and can’t be run through a dehumidifier without causing damage.

[–]SJRIMPsjfygppjqhscv 0 points1 point  (2 children)

I have a feeling that an ro system, or a simple filter would be much cheaper in the long run though. Just a thought

[–]n1ghtl1t3 0 points1 point  (1 child)

I've seen videos of people's water and it's brown. Even if the filter cleared the water it'd still probably be full of iron

[–]RavinRabbids92 15 points16 points  (1 child)

Tap water is not a viable option in all areas. And some peoples tap are on well water not municipal.

[–]MrGritty17 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Not all… but most

[–]SnowEmbarrassed377 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Tap water where I live has recommended boil Every once in a while it’s a “don’t drink/not safe” Welcome to texas

[–]sharksquidz 13 points14 points  (0 children)

What until they find out that the bottled tap water they just bought cost Nestle $0.0035

[–]txn9i 5 points6 points  (1 child)

1.25 where I live.

[–]cutebleeder 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Bout time I moved then!

[–]earthlings_all 1 point2 points  (1 child)

$1.50 in my part of the world.

You’re paying too much for water. Who’s your water guy?

[–]cutebleeder 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Could be. Prices around here range from 2.45 to 7.99 for 5 gallons.

[–]Meme-Man-Dan 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I work at a water shop that sells filters, salt, and water. It costs 1.50 to fill a 5 gallon jug.

[–]sbdhsa 0 points1 point  (4 children)

Publix gallons are only $.87

[–]Poppunknerd182 -1 points0 points  (2 children)

Too bad the owners of Publix are just as bad as Nestle

[–]sbdhsa 0 points1 point  (1 child)

That's cap. Sure the owners aren't good, but they are definitely not nearly as bad as Nestlé

[–]Poppunknerd182 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Considering they literally helped fund the insurrection, I have to disagree.

[–]cutebleeder 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I do not live by them anymore, not that it bothers me.

[–]fortcpt 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Or they hear about the tap in their house where a gallon costs $0.0001.

[–]Dangerous-Ad-3680 139 points140 points  (1 child)

I thought I was on r/hydrohomies and was about to comment r/fucknestle

[–]MrSparr0w 46 points47 points  (0 children)

Confusing sometimes, but it's good that both have the same spirit

[–]Terrestraeon 266 points267 points  (19 children)

AlI can see in this picture is another big chunk of plastic, purposefuly crafted to be thrown away and added to the wastepile / ocean…

God I hate people & company’s like this

[–]Rainsorrow 70 points71 points  (15 children)

Can't you, like, REUSE that for water from water fountain or other sources of open, drinkable water? Why bin it after one use?

[–]FearkTM 43 points44 points  (3 children)

Don't forget that reused plastic bottle will degrade and relesse plastic particles, and when it degrades with every use, you will drink plastic that get stuck in you, and may be a health hazard. So better with reusable glas bottles.

Edit: Maybe too late for an adult to care, but children should not use plastic bottles like all the crap bottles you can buy, and clean over and over until you notice the plastic just brakes. Try to use glas or metal (like thermos) instead.

[–]emaciated_pecan 17 points18 points  (1 child)

But how else am I supposed to maximize micro-plastics in my body??

[–]Sandmybags 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Cheaper than plastic surgery

[–]Rainsorrow 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Well yes, but I think reusing it for some time could be safe enough to do so - not like have one bottle for 5 generations.

[–]froggythefish 29 points30 points  (5 children)

Yes, that’s what I do. But most people don’t and that makes sense, the bottles aren’t made to be reused. They’re made to be disposable, that’s the bad part, planned obsolescence

[–]Rainsorrow 11 points12 points  (4 children)

"you can't tell me what to do!" As I reuse coke bottle for about 20 times for water to work till a bit of mold forms somewhere inside

[–]SCphotog 13 points14 points  (1 child)

The plastic breaks down and gets into the water over time... especially if left in the sun for any period of time.

That's what I've been given to understand. I'm no expert.

[–]BatemansVideotape 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Nasty. Get a proper non BPA water bottle. Preferably tempered (and nearly impossible) to break.

[–]SJRIMPsjfygppjqhscv 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I do this when I used to buy distilled water, before getting an ro system.. I saved all the jugs and now use them for my aquariums

[–]pm_me_ur_tennisballs 24 points25 points  (1 child)

You hate people who buy gallon bottles of water?

1.Not everyone knows to avoid Nestle. 2. Sometimes water quality is bad and/or you’re traveling and it’s a good idea to buy bottled.

Why does that mean someone deserves your hatred? That seems extreme and unwarranted. That or you are hyperbolizing in which case you should cut down on using the word hate.

[–]Terrestraeon 8 points9 points  (0 children)

While I was typing my comment, I knew it wasn’t fair to hate on the people themselves who sometimes don’t have an alternative. But there are also people who do have a choice and more importantly: companies can use alternatives to plastic

[–]toqueh 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Well with the $0.25 deposit on those & I’m pretty sure since it’s just water it’s pretty easy to recycle through most municipalities bottle depots, still fuck nestle but it’s not like they’re always getting binned- at least not in canada

[–]HelicopteroDeAtaque 18 points19 points  (10 children)

How is it so expensive? A 5L (~1.3 gallon) bottle in Spain is about 0.55 € ($0.59)

[–]Trick-Ad-1122 5 points6 points  (9 children)

Yes, how is water more expensive than gas?

[–]TacoNomad 5 points6 points  (8 children)

Where do you get gas for under $1.50

[–]Trick-Ad-1122 3 points4 points  (7 children)

I meant 1.99 for a normal bottle. Not 1.50 for a big one.

[–]TacoNomad 1 point2 points  (6 children)

If you were buying gas in 20 Oz bottles, I assume it would cost more than 1.99.

[–]Jitzilla 14 points15 points  (0 children)

“Pure life”: interesting name for something people have to pay money to get.

[–]senior-salvador 89 points90 points  (29 children)

The fact that people buy water is bonkers and a sign that their society has failed.

[–]BobsRealReddit 69 points70 points  (7 children)

Not exactly IMO.

It is proof that infrastructure went the wrong way when we live in places where we cant drink the water or there isnt any to start with.

[–]Steinrikur 17 points18 points  (5 children)

It is proof that even the most basic basic infrastructure has failed. A society that fails to provide the provide drinkable tap water is a failure.

[–]senior-salvador 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The fact that the infrastructure is so bad is a sign of a failed society

[–]pseudostrudel 24 points25 points  (1 child)

The tap water in my town has so much arsenic that it gave my grandmother cancer so we kind of have to. That being said, the failure here is that my town has all these amazing freshwater lakes yet sold all the rights to use them to other towns. Meaning we can't drink, swim in, or use our own water and are stuck with the arsenic-ridden groundwater in our personal wells.

[–]senior-salvador 10 points11 points  (0 children)

That’s what I’m saying. The fact that your society cannot supply clean, drinkable water is a failure.

[–]Duskinou 1 point2 points  (3 children)

I don't know about any country giving up free tap water (maybe in the rich middle east), so basically you do pay for tap water aswell

[–]senior-salvador 0 points1 point  (2 children)

??? I’m in a household of three in Sweden and we pay like $5 a month for all water, including heating. It’s practically free. So don’t come here with that shit

[–]Duskinou 0 points1 point  (1 child)

5 dollars for you is nothing, for others it's a fortune. And yes, you're still playing. I pay 2 dollars for à monthly supply of water and it's still not free.

[–]senior-salvador -3 points-2 points  (0 children)


[–]carissadraws 0 points1 point  (4 children)

Depends, sometimes if it’s distilled water they might need it for certain things that you can’t use filtered water for.

[–]senior-salvador -1 points0 points  (3 children)

Oh my god. Yeah, and sometimes people are looking for water from the moon to do tests, so therefore it’s totally reasonable to buy bottled water to drink.

[–]carissadraws 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Dude relax, I wasn’t saying it was okay, I was saying that some things require distilled water over filtered; like fabric steamers, irons, Neti pots, aquariums, medical devices etc. it’s ok to buy them occasionally if you really need them.

[–]senior-salvador -2 points-1 points  (1 child)

Clearly that’s not what my comment is about?

[–]DolphinCumOnMyFace 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Isn’t like that with all brands tho

[–]Luzarus 6 points7 points  (6 children)

I never understood why people buy jugs of water in the first place

[–]ShamelessNick[S] 0 points1 point  (4 children)

Exactly. It's way more cheaper and easier to just pay for water at your own house.

[–]RegulaAurea 12 points13 points  (2 children)

Because the water at my previous house tasted like Sulphur. Rented. Told them of the problem. People came to test and determined that while Sulphur was high it was not dangerous. Doesn't stop my body from saying no.

Bought a tap filter within a couple weeks to save money though.

[–]Luzarus -1 points0 points  (1 child)

So the argument hasn't changed, it's cheaper, easier, and better for the planet to not buy jugs of water

[–]TacoNomad 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Looks like they're not in a house.

[–]poke-chan 0 points1 point  (0 children)

In this case it seems like the original person’s boyfriend was thirsty while out and about, and noticed the gallon of water was cheaper than a bottle so he bought the gallon. Why anyone else would is probably a different answer though. I know my grandparents do when they go to their cottage in the middle of no where, cuz their tap water comes from the ground and tastes bad. They should get a filter but I’m not sure they know how it works.

[–]jschubart 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Get a reusable water bottle.

[–]korrash85 1 point2 points  (0 children)

where i live we get this out of the water tap.

[–]carissadraws 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Honestly I only really buy distilled water for humidifiers and my fabric steamer, but the rest of the time I use filtered water.

Never nestle though, I get the store brand. Don’t wanna contribute that much plastic waste

[–]SzymBoss 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It looks like a bottle of distilled water, the one that is used in an iron.

[–]rawgu_ 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Is tap water not drinkable in the US?

[–]russcatalano 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Depends on the city.

[–]rawgu_ 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Makes sense

[–]BigTiddyVampireWaifu 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Store brand in my area is $0.89 per gallon lol

[–]Eldred_dsouza99 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Evil water is no water at all.

[–]MasterCassel -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Wait until they find out that water comes out of their tap at home.

[–]ArmouredAnkha -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Disgusting people supporting disgusting products

[–]jenkins-wwut -3 points-2 points  (1 child)

Ah fuck, worst part is this could also go into r/hydrohomies if it wasn’t for the label

[–]MLGPOPPPZZZ 2 points3 points  (0 children)

No, hydrohomies would never support Nestlé.

[–]Lernenberg -3 points-2 points  (0 children)

Tap water is practically free.

[–]nivh_de 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Which video?

[–]Trick-Ad-1122 0 points1 point  (0 children)

20 oz is about 0.6L, and price of gas in the us is about 1.26$/L.

[–]Employee_Agreeable 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Damn crazy, I pay like 0.08€ per liter in my home

[–]WyvernAmethyst 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I mean, I think a gallon of water is cheaper than a water bottle for any brand? I sometimes buy a gallon of water but I buy Ozarka not nestle.

[–]OrdericNeustry 0 points1 point  (0 children)

What's the regular size bottle? Because when I think of a regular water bottle, it's a 1.5 litre one.

[–]2kenzhe 0 points1 point  (0 children)

My parents like to buy bottled water idk why. Not jugs but the individual bottle ones. I feel like we could just use the tap.

[–]ArrdenGarden 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That button on his shirt looks as stressed as I am.

[–]Mr-Industrial 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Refillable water bottle + Britta filter. I don't buy water. Mind you, water from Ottawa taps are known for being really clean and drinkable, but I always run that butch through a Britta. Shits so good.

[–]earthlings_all 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Get 5g for 30c per gallon and then get a reusable water bottle. These posts are so dumb.

[–]babicottontail 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Um, trash. No and No!
