I think clean water is very very important and I think we are all PERSONALLY responsible for doing what we can to make sure the water around us is clean. and that means doing our part before we start pointing fingers.. and I can be a ranter when folks start pointing fingers before they've taken responsibility.. just ask me.
that being said... I'm tired of plastic water bottles.. I'm tired of folks not being willing to bottle up water before they leave their houses... (and please don't reuse plastic bottles not intended for reuse, they leach plasticizers, harbor bacteria, ech! and are generally unsafe) and the assumption that the sealed bottled water you are drinking is safe..huh...naive at best
but I'm going to let this link give you the other real scoop, the drain on our local resources that these water bottles are.. the water bottle scoop
