This website helps anyone who wants to find out if one can safely drink tap water in a certain place.
People often research this topic on Google and get results of varying quality, anything from opinion-based blog posts to forums, while more reliable sources are often deeply buried on the web and therefore inaccessible.
Because of this hard-to-reach information and because of shady marketing strategies from bottling companies (see Fear, uncertainty, and doubt
), many people decide to "play safe" and buy bottled water, even though they often could drink safe and inexpensive tap water, possibly by purchasing an inexpensive water filter.
We saw a sharp global increase in bottled water consumption since plastic got widely available even though the content of bottled water is not even worth a tenth for what it's sold.
I think in many places on this planet, drinking pure or filtered tap water is a healthier, more environmentally friendly, and much more economical choice for consumers.
We collect data from distinct sources on the web. Each of them linked on the respective page.
