Under the Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act (HHFKA), schools must make free potable water available where meals are served. No other federal regulations address accessibility of water on school campuses.
How much does that water you’re drinking cost?
• In the U.S., drinking your daily eight glasses of tap water costs $0.49 per year— drinking the same amount of bottled water, $1,400.
• Combined, Aquafina (marketed by PepsiCo) and Dasani (marketed by Coca-Cola) make up roughly 25 percent of all bottled water sales; both are purified municipal water.
• For $60,000 you can buy a bottle of Acqua di Cristallo—it comes in a 24-karat gold bottle, contains bits of gold dust and is the world’s most expensive bottled water.
• For that same $60,000, you can purchase 20,067 cases of Crystal Geyser Alpine Spring Water.
