PepsiCo Inc. will spell out that its Aquafina bottled water is made with tap water, a concession to the growing environmental and political opposition to the bottled water industry.
According to Corporate Accountability International, a U.S. watchdog group, the world’s No. 2 beverage company will include the words "Public Water Source" on Aquafina labels.
Michelle Naughton, a Pepsi-Cola North America spokeswoman, was quoted as asying, "If this helps clarify the fact that the water originates from public sources, then it’s a reasonable thing to do."
It’s tap water. Always has been. Yeah for microbiological testing of public water.
