Today I was sipping tea in a teahouse when I a strange thought came to my mind: Is there such a thing as organic bottled water? For someone like me who tries to be natural and organic as much as possible, it seemed rather strange that this was something I had never actually considered. But it’s true — I had never thought about it before, and it got me wondering.
Does someone out there in the world claim to make organic bottled water?
To clarify, I’m not asking because I want to drink this potentially mythical beverage. I am a huge believer in filtered tap water (obviously this depends on your region, and what I recommend for my area I cannot necessarily recommend for yours). It’s more a theoretical question, and a strange one in that I couldn’t believe that I honestly had never considered this before.
Needless to say, I pulled out my trusty laptop and began doing some Internet digging. First, I came across a fantastically hysterical picture over at TreeHugger.com entitled, “Are You Kidding Us, Safeway?”
As you can see, apparently Safeway is advertising their “Organic” tap water by claiming these features:
- No antibiotics
- No growth hormones
- No synthetic pesticides
- No genetic modifications
Over at Amazon, things weren’t much better.
When I did a search for “organic bottled water” the top result was something called Kona Deep Sea Mineral Water. It’s advertised as “The Only 100% Organic Electrolyte Rich Bottled Water.” However, I soon saw that it’s been out of stock for rather a long time — with no end in sight;(
Sell out much, Kona? I think not.
My conclusion from all this sleuthing?
Organic Bottled Water doesn’t (really) exist, and I’m glad for that!
What do you think? Do you want the organic bottled water man to make a stop at your door anytime soon?
Have you ever come across Organic Bottled Water?
