Talk about a major malfunction and hypocritical society it's bottled water. All of the Climate Change gurus love their bottled water. In fact most everyone loves bottled water.

We find the empty bottles in trash cans overflowing with trash in just about every recreational spot across the country. Our beaches are soiled with empty bottles. Our parks our city streets along the side of the road ways.

Trash unfortunately is just the tip of the iceberg.

Brief description of the process:

The factories that produce millions of the slugs that latter will be made into bottles consumes tons of plastic. We all know that the production of the raw material is bad for the environment and the processing is not much better. Then the labels, again produced from plastic and printed with ink.

Train/trucks deliver the raw materials to the factories that produce the slugs.
Trains/trucks deliver the raw materials to the factories that produce labels.

Train/trucks deliver the slugs to the factories that fill the water bottles.
Trucks deliver the labels to the factories that fill the water bottles.

The slugs are made into bottles then sterilized using ozone, the bottles are filled with water that contains ozone. The labels are applied the filled bottles are packaged then shipped via truck to warehouses then to stores.

Tons of hydrocarbons are generated just in transportation. Then millions of kilowatt hours are used in the production processes.

All of this because people think they might dehydrate if they don't have their bottle of water within arms length.

Water is essential to health. If you are not urinating 8-10 times a day, you may not be providing yourself enough water.

Sugar is is not so essential. Healthy people are conscience of the amount of sugar they allow in their diets and also the amount of water they are providing their bodies for good health.

Doctors agree that people should limit sugar to about 10 grams a day, and drink as much water as they possibly can, throughout the day. Some soft drinks or energy drinks or even certain fruit juices are way over 10 grams of sugar in just a 12 oz. drink.

People are on the go and have to make choices convenient to them, and millions of people are now choosing a bottle of water vs. a soft drink when quenching their thirst. It is because they are trying to make a healthy choice.

In terms of the amount of plastic it takes to supply a nation of people on the go with water, is no more than trying to supply the nation with soft drinks or energy drinks.

Because if they weren't drinking water, they would be drinking something else that is purchased in plastic.

So your point about using plastic for water bottles becomes a mute point!

Nothing wrong with that, as long as that is convenient for you.

And if you so happen to want to purchase a drink out on the road at a convenience store, or at a sporting event, or even at work out of the vending machine and be able to take with you back to your own space, a bottle of water is always available to those who want to do that as well.

So, a man does what a man has to do to survive.

Whatever floats your boat- and there are many boats afloat!

The worst part is that the big water companies, like Nestle, pay next to nothing for the water they are producing from the freshwater reservoirs. The reverse osmosis for non-spring water doesn't cost that much. Spring water requires no processing(costs) at all.

Water resources should be preserved for actual usage for homes/public water jurisdictions.

There are significant costs associated with processing spring water. Not as much as other waters but still there are plenty of costs.

Put a ten cent per unit returnable deposit on water and the empties will all but disappear.

Super markets have can and bottle crushers that read the USP code so that they will only take cans/bottles from their area or state.

Sorry, Kramer & Newman you can't bring your "foreign" containers here for the deposit.

So much of responsibility is left up to the individual.

If you pack it in- pack it out.

Dispose of trash responsibly. Don't litter.

There is a proper way to set your trash out to the curb- and an irresponsible way.

The proper way is to separate and recycle all recyclable goods.

So, if you are not doing all you can STFU!

I remember when the first bottled water came in to the store I worked at the manager put it by the starch because there was distilled water there for irons. Never had been any other bottled water. I tell kids that now with the pallets and pallets of bottled water and they don't believe it. True story.

Fun times Regina!

Many moons ago I had an exercise studio and ran out water in the bottled water cooler so we took it out back and filled it up with the hose. THe customers were raving about how good the water was. You know, ive never repeated that story but looking back now, it was pretty funny.

there are many brands of bottled water that can make you sick.
I never buy the stuff. Instead buy a Zerowater pitcher and keep a few ready made bottles in the fridge.

Zero beats Brita 100000000 to one! I use a Zero and I distill a gallon a day on a countertop distiller. Someone trusts tap water? Go for it. I don't. Too much shit in it, flourides, clorine etc. I get a letter from the water dept once a month. "we have had a breach of this amount, steps have been taken, you don't need to boil your water." Screw you, I'll filter or distill no matter what.

The point of this post was to demonstrate that bottled water adds to climate change. To further add, those folks that run around preaching that the World is going to end because of climate change are themselves contributors.

Love my water filter.

Now have to worry if the filter is harmful to the environment.

Maybe should only drink rain water to be safe.
