Bottled-water research

(article, Culinate staff)

Bottled water, the nonprofit organization Environmental Working Group has found, ain't as pure as its makers would have you believe; the nonprofit has turned up fertilizers and pain meds, among other unsavory substances, in bottled water. Now the group is asking consumers to help its water research by clipping and mailing in labels from bottled water. Whoever sends in the most labels by June 15 to EWG's D.C. address wins a reusable water bottle — and might be inspired to kick the bottled-water habit that helped win the contest in the first place.
