Tens of thousands of Flint residents still do not have clean water and aid is inconsistent. Some people don't qualify for help and others must travel out of the city, regardless of transportation restrictions, to get bottled water. Some wait hours in line just to be turned away.
25% or more of the water used to fill water bottles could come from the tap. However, tap water can contain contaminants like heavy metals, arsenic, and BPAs.
Often, plastic bottles are not recycled and end up in our oceans and water sources.
