While traveling this weekend, I stopped at a fast food restaurant to get a bottle of water and get back on the road. Lately, I’ve become more interested in where my food and drinks come from, so I decided to read the label. 

 

While traveling this weekend, I stopped at a fast food restaurant to get a bottle of water and get back on the road. Lately, I’ve become more interested in where my food and drinks come from, so I decided to read the label. 

To my surprise, this company’s bottled water has quite a lot of mileage. The water’s source is the municipal water supplies of Palestine, Texas, it is bottled by a company in Little Rock and it is then distributed by the corporation’s office in Oklahoma City, Okla.
