The most popular drink in America is sold at a 4000 percent markup and is responsible for tens of millions of discarded containers each day: bottled water. Despite U.S. tap water - with some notable exceptions - being safe to drink, around one third of Americans don't consume it at all, while another third is most likely to drink their tap water filtered.
Almost as many people - 56 percent - said they regularly grabbed a soft drink. Alcoholic drinks - among those 21 years and older - proved less popular. Beer still beat wine at 25 percent vs. 24 percent popularity.
