Water Drop #31 – It’s everywhere and so is the trash it creates but Water is becoming the next blue gold. Companies like Coca Cola or Pepsi are not restricted from mining water sources where as you might be restricted from watering your yard. Nor is the bottled water product under the same stringent requirements of municipal water plants.Please think twice before reaching for bottled water. Many plastic bottles add toxic chemicals from the oil industry that produces billions of plastic bottles annually. The continued increase of plastic bottles is ending up in our lakes, streams, rivers, and the oceans. It has had a harmful effect on nature and on many of you. Check the public water quality reports for you town. Tap water is safer then bottled water. But it is not vital water. It has lost its natural life forces. We are not doing what we need to do to keep our planet and ourselves healthy. Take a stand to protect your water. Use glass or Terracotta containers for your health and the health of you friends and family.
