Obviously, bottled water is necessary in certain situations. We wouldn't want to lose it forever, perhaps just consume less of it. Baby steps, kittens. Baby steps. I wrote about my own family's bottled water crisis, and for the last year we've greened up for good.
This evening, I was perusing Eco-Yogini's post on the SIGG water bottle controversy. Turns out this greenwashing giant has been churning out super stylish aluminum bottles lined with a BPA liner. I don't have one. Instead, I invested in several Kleen Kanteens, and I couldn't be happier. They're manufactured in the States, made of stainless steel, and they stay chilled beautifully. Best of all, no runny, sticky plastic drink bottles to schlep home from the football fields! Yay!
Citizen Green's post on why these plastic containers are hazardous is a great starting point for learning how to mitigate your consumption.
