Synopsis

Is it safe to drink tap water? Is bottled water wasteful? And with a booming worldwide population, where will our water come from in the future? Water is something we take for granted; whether from tap or bottle, we rarely think about its source. But its journey to our glasses is more complicated than we realise. Drinking Water explains the overlooked and often surprising history of drinking water - from Biblical conflicts to overpriced Perrier in restaurants. Bringing up thought-provoking issues of globalisation, social justice, and climate change, you will never look at your glass in the same way again.
