The magazine 60 Million Consumers is official: out of fifty bottled waters tested – mineral or spring – ten contained traces of medicines or pesticides: Hépar, Mont Roucous, Saint-Amand, Vittel, Volvic, Carrefour Discount, Cora, Cristalline, Salvetat, Saint-Yorre, and three brands of bottled water: O’water, Obio, Culligan Val-de-Marne
A stone in the bottlers’ garden, especially for mineral waters. These waters are not only judged for their sanitary quality, which must be obvious, but also for their “original purity”. They must not undergo any chemical treatment (such as spring water) and their mineral composition must be stable throughout the year.
When we know the energy spent by companies to protect the sources of their most prestigious brand from pollution, we can wonder about the general state of the environment and groundwater.
