Boycott Water (March 23, 2009)

Boycott bottled water.  Boycott plastic bottled water.  Water in a bottle is more expensive than oil in a barrel.  Worldwatch does the math and shows that bottled water costs as much as $336 per bottle.  The quality may be less than water available from the tap.  Some bottled water is little more than tap water in a plastic bottle.  Water in the Middle East is becoming as valuable as oil.  Encourage the economic production and distribution of safe drinking water.

Things like bisphenol A and phthalates don’t sound healthy.  The one word advice to young Benjamin Braddock–“plastics”–is an admonition to all, young and old, who risk being absolved more quickly and painfully of their mortality.

even if it is the only water after a race

even if it is the only water.
