Single-use plastic water bottles require the input of an incredible amount of energy that the everyday consumer can avoid while simultaneously getting their daily fill of H2O. So if we aren't drinking from plastic water bottles, where can we get our recommended daily amount of water?
Isn't it time for a fresh approach? Rather than regulate against fountains, perhaps Local Government should plan for fountains by publishing a list of pre-approved locations and fountain specifications.
I spied a disposable water bottle nearby, and it struck me: what better, more direct way to teach kids-- and adults, for that matter-- about how we've gotten ourselves into this mess in the first place?
