Dump the bottle

Some months ago, I posted about Elizabeth Royte’s book Bottlemania – a book that not only exposed the idiocy of the bottled water cult, but the damage that it does to the environment.  I see that Johann Hari has a piece in today’s Independent, announcing his intention to give up bottled water for the new year; it’s a useful reminder of one very simple way in which affluent Westerners can make just a little bit of a difference.

Hari also exposes the practices used by Coca Cola in its third world operations – again, an opportunity just to say no.
