Ban bottled water? Thanks for the suggestion.

I was amazed at the stat early in this quote (I have not verified the claim)

Erich the Green: Ban bottled water? Thanks for the suggestion.:
"The energy to make each bottle, run the plant, ship the bottle, chill it, and recycle it would fill each water bottle ¼ with crude oil. Although if bottles were truly recycled, the old plastic would go into the new bottles, which it doesn’t.
Tap water has fewer bacteria than 70% of bottled water; Canada’s had 29 recalls of 49 bottled water products between 2000 and 2009. And 40% of bottled water is just tap water in a throwaway container.
Why pay 1000 times more for the same thing? "
