I've railed against bottled water often on this site. The privatization of water is a global crisis, and it is high time for this issue to get the attention it deserves. This video gives a succinct and clear history of bottled water and how it became so marketable and commonplace in our society-- and how bad it is for our environment, health, and global responsibility. If you have a friend or family member who is still buying lots of bottled water, this might be a simple way to explain all that is wrong with it (from a third party helps, too!). Also, we must get our states to stop buying any bottled water for use in government jobs and facilities. I certainly don't want my dollars going to multi-national bottled water corporations!
And you can tell your governor not to buy or use bottled water in your state. We can do this if they hear from enough of us!
