Take Back the Tap
Anna Lappe, here, wrote about a really important water resources issue that has a steep slope to climb: that slope I see as the "convenience" of bottled water. It's so easy to go from "I want to take care of my body, so I don't drink soda." to "Going for a hike, it would be nice to tote some water. Oh, darn I don't have a reusable drink container so I'll just buy a case of that bottled water from the supermarket." When you examine this, you realize that there are great opportunities for saving money as well as improving the environment while continuing to drink water instead of soda pop.
