Since I wrote the My Water Bottle post a surprising number of people have shared their experience with "Giving up bottled water." I'm thrilled by how many people the post reached, and at the same time disappointed that the message I got across was to "Give Up Bottled Water" instead of to "Switch to Tap."
I think the reason the switching to tap water has been so easy for me is I never really thought of it as giving something up. To the contrary I've always thought of switching to tap as getting something.
- The $2 per bottle that I keep in my pocket to buy DRM free music from amazon.
- Sticking it to the corporations that
marketedbrainwashed me into thinking I needed bottled water.
- The knowledge that the air is a little cleaner for my kids.
- The ability to drink clean water without having to sponsor oil producing middle east governments that like to lash and jail women for being raped.
