A nice brief on bottled water

Water Without Waste has a nice piece through a Comcast interview on why using disposable plastic water bottles is unsustainable. Simply put, "The total amount of energy embedded in our use of bottled water—including the energy to produce, fill, transport, chill, and dispose of the bottles can be as high as the equivalent of filling each plastic bottle one quarter full with oil.”

    Faculty Senate no longer wants water bottles for their meetings. Instead, they asked for pitchers with water. And others are following suit! Yes!
