Bottled Water Sucks
I've decided that we should go about making bottled water less hip. Tap water is sexy, people, so robust, rugged... and yummy. Tap water is so alternative, not mainstream (ha!) at all.
Check out the bottled water pledge on the SF Dept of the Environment's website.
Take it. Water is a serious environmental justice issue. And while I could drink bottled water as a Compactor, that's silly.
I found this image in an article about "Steve Trewhella who adopted his local beach in Dorset and organises regular clean-ups". Stewardship, like tap water, is Compact friendly. Beach cleaning is a laudable alternative to shopping.
I wish I could figure out how to supply McLaren Park Earth Day with non-bottled water. I'm thinking about trying to get ahold of a bunch of water coolers via freecycle. We could refill them throughout the day. But I might be the only one who's down for this idea because it will be so labor intensive.
