The Act of Green of the Week - Don't buy bottled water
Our act of green of the week comes from Ann Lin who is urging us all to reconsider our consumption of bottled water.
The manufacturing of bottled water wastes a lot of water. So, don't buy bottled water, use a water flask.
We are depleting local acquifers worldwide. There's also the issues of pollution from discarded water bottles which we don't recycle. Lastly, let's not forget the amount of fuel used in making water bottles and transporting them.
An excellent alternative to bottled water is simply your faucet. Some cities like New York have tap water of such good quality, they can rival bottled water produced commercially.
