New US tax on bottled water

Original article published by Beverage Blog - Tuesday 15 August 2017

To me, better hydration means better health. All water contributes to that. And bottled water just as well as tap.

No calories, no treatment, natural purity, local sourcing, lightweight packaging, easy recycling, low carbon footprint, great convenience – the benefits are manifold.

And yet…

Washington State in the United States introduced a new tax on bottled water from 1st August.

It’s expected to raise $30 million in a full year.

Personally, I can’t fathom this. Compared with all other competing choices, water should be preferred not penalised.
