Drinking Bottled Water As Wrong As Smoking - Official

Message on a bottle goes down drain as consumers spurn free tap water - Scotsman.com News

SALES of bottled water soared last month as consumers rejected appeals by a government minister to turn their backs on the industry and use tap water.
Figures for bottled water sales for the week ending 10 May show that they were 23.2 per cent higher than the same period the previous year.

The surge in sales comes despite a stinging attack on the bottled water industry by Environment Minister Phil Woolas, who described it as bordering on the morally unacceptable...supported by Tim Lang, the government's natural resources commissioner, who has said that the only way to combat the problem would be to make "people think that it's unfashionable just as we have with smoking. We need a similar campaign to convince people that this is wrong."
