How to use bottled water and tap water in Tucson
— (AP) You might think you can get your drink of the day with a water bottle.
But if you want to make sure you don’t miss a sip, it’s best to order from a vendor.
The Arizona Republic reports that a number of manufacturers have decided to drop the water bottle altogether, while others are making changes that may help.
The new bottles are being sold at more than 50 convenience stores, with most offering bottled water for $1.99.
Many have already gone down.
The New York Times reported this week that a dozen grocery chains in Florida and New Jersey have announced that they will no longer carry bottled water.
It is not clear whether any of the retailers will be able to sell the new models.
The Times also reported that several grocery chains have announced they will start selling tap water from non-traditional sources.
The Washington Post reports that Walmart, which sells bottled water, said it will begin selling tap, not tap-only water for its stores.
The paper also reports that PepsiCo is considering eliminating tap water.
