RIP Plastic Water Bottles


I was just listening to 'Hack' on Triple J and they were reporting on a small NSW town, Bundanoon, who are planning to ban bottled water from their town. Go Bandanoon!
Filtered water fountains will be installed along the main street and residents will use their own re-usable bottles to keep hydrated.
Hmmm hopefully Sydney catches up soon. These bottles from Sigg (available here) are sooo much cooler than plastic bottles anyway!

oh I agree, I was super excited about this.

and I love my SIGG bottle, the water stays ridiculously cold for AGES and doesn't taste like plastic when you drink!

We all know disposable water bottles are wasteful and bad for the environment, yet their production is growing rapidly everywhere. Just 20 years ago the market for plastic water bottles was practically nonexistent, but today we produce billions of these completely unnecessary products. There can be only one sane response, plastic water bottles must be banned!
