A few years ago, maybe in 2012 I purchased a few cases of Aquafina 16 Oz bottles in 24/pack. I did a lot of paperwork at home to bring to work next day and I was thirsty. I grabbed a bottle of Aquafina, I drank some and put it down on the desk, what a disaster!! The bottle fell down wetting all my work pages! I had to redo everything. I tried a few more bottle and none would stand up! I called PepsiCo and spoke to a lady in charge, I explained the situation, I was mad! She apologized and said she was all out of coupons or she would send me some later. I received 1 coupon a few weeks later. I stopped buying Aquafina until last week, almost 3 years, when I got home I checked the bottles and several did not stand up!, my wife is using to water the inside plants because I do not want to aggravate myself anymore, I just will buy different brands and put my case to rest. I even wrote them that since they made the plastic paper thin it was bulking at the bottom making the bottles not stand and if some "DESIGNER ENGINEER" would redesign the shape perhaps it would correct the problem. This is the end of this purified, overpriced tap water for me. I am all for saving the world but I think that we need to do meny other corrections to get results, one would be to control the overpopulated world!

Maybe just get one good bottle...that DOES stand up....and then just fill it with your tap water...re-use it forever, over and over.

Is there some reason not to just uncap the flimsy bottle and pour the water into a glass to drink it? Am I missing something here?

You are not helping save the world by purchasing bottled water.
Put the lid on the open bottle.
Put the bottle in a coozie.

We buy Aqua Fina and then refill the bottles with tap water. We have good tap water, though, and that makes a difference.

Bad idea to reuse those bottles.

I have a PūR water filter on my kitchen faucet so I don't have to waste money on bottled water.
