Bottled drinking water

Posted by Don Binkley on February 1, 2009, 9:20 am

I recall sometime in the past there was a discussion on the quality of bottled water from the (2) companies that supply La Manzanilla with 20 litre plastic bottles. It might be a good idea to check on the bottom of your plastic bottle and see if in the small triangle there's a #7. This type of bottle is now prohibited in Canada and Wal-Mart plans to have all bottles of this type off the shelf by mid 2009.
A year of usage of water in this type of bottle is seriously harmful to your health. In Mexico best thing to do is dump all the water into your ceramic water container or use a #2 water container (the flexible plastic like a milk container). This is a known carcinogen!
