Bottled Water

Is it the epitome of conspicuous consumption that we drink bottled water when there is perfectly potable water from our taps?

I don't buy much bottled water--though on 06/12/10 I consumed this bottle to the left.  I have well water and reusable water bottles aplenty.  With so many countries with so little in sanitation and potable water systems (the very systems that we have and we seeming eschew in favor of bottled water), it strikes me that the delta between money spent buying bottle water v. tap (or filtered tap) water could build a few local water systems.

Change begins with observation and intent born of that observation.  I intend to limit if not eliminate my purchase and consumption of bottled water.
