Glamor Water and Its Sins

I never thought I would see the day when people would make millions of dollars putting tap water in a bottle. But it’s happened! The multi-million-dollar bottled water industry takes water from one place (a place that may need the water), puts it in plastic bottles made of petrochemicals, and ships it in gas-guzzling trucks and ships hundreds or even thousands of miles away. Check it out here: http://storyofstuff.org/bottledwater//

To add insult to injury, the bottled water is not always healthier than tap water – and sometimes it IS tap water, with a fancy name and price tag attached.

Liberate yourself from this expensive folly! Use a permanent metal bottle and take water with you from home. Think what you’ll do with the money you save – and how much the earth will thank you!
