What’s wrong with bottled water?

What’s wrong with it:

  1. the water is not necessarily better
  2. fossil fuels and carbon footprint
  3. plastic and downcycling
  4. the entire use-it-once-and-throw-it-“away” mentality

And there’s more …

  • read about how bottled water companies are stripping water resources from our mountain ecosystems (Sierra Club pdf)

What you can do …

  • use reusable containers (carry your own mess kit).
    • don’t get distracted by the dizzying array of water bottles for sale. remember that’s runaway consumption too! you only need one, and you can make do with something as simple as a mason jar.
  • use tapwater (unless you know for sure that location’s tapwater is polluted)
