No More Bottled Water!!!

Did you know:

  • Production of bottled water in the U.S. requires roughly more than 17 million barrels of oil!

  • More energy is then needed to trasport those bottles from the bottling plant to warehouses and stores.

  • Municipal water takes only the energy needed to pump the water to our homes.

No, I didn't make this up; these facts are according to the Pacific Institute. And a very easy way to reduce your carbon footrprint is to just say "No" to bottled water.

  • Is the quality of your tap water not very good? Install a water filter on your tap with the money you'll save from not buying bottled water.

  • Do you need to take water with you on the go? Drink from reusable metal or glass containers when travelling.

  • Urge your favorite restaurants to stop offering bottled water.
