Also, you mentioned that companies like Nestle have to pay the bills. Well, so do we. You want clean accessible water everywhere you go? That shit ain't free!
No, PoliticsAsUsual, I am very familiar with the cost of the filtration equipment. I do think that paying for our water at a reasonable price is fair though. We should all be thankful we have access to clean consumable water unlike other countries who are face to face with water crisis. But investing in something that collects your water is well worth it. Like I originally stated, I wouldn't mind putting in the time and work. It also allows someone to be less dependent on others for their survival.
However, I still disagree with what Nestle is doing because it is the water we pay to have cleaned and available. They are bottling OUR tap water. Mostly, it's ducked up that they are taking large amounts of tap from states who ARE face to face with a water crisis, California for example. Then charging extremely high prices for it.
that being said, capable governments should provide free clean drinking water to its citizens.
I guarantee you are underestimating the cost of distillation equipment? why not just by a filter and use the municipal supply if you don't like nestle?
I'm sure they do make a pretty profit, but that's mostly because of economics of scale. you won't beat them with @ home rain water filtration. your also forgetting their likely massive initial investment, their rent for factories and officie, salaries for their employees, and maintenance costs. your not just paying for the water.
It can be. Collect rain water and filter it yourself. It's something I am willing to invest in. What I'm opposed to is big companies like nestle taking the water and selling it for hundreds of times more than it really is.
