Just say no to bottled water.

Adriene Hill Dec 2, 2010

Refuse bottled water. Municipal water systems are far more energy-efficient than bottled water, and more closely monitored for health safety, too! Even if you recycle the bottle, the process of bottling, trucking, refrigerating, hauling, and recycling the bottle is far more consumptive than piped water. Don’t like the taste? By a Brita or other filter system.
