Town Bans Bottled Water

One of my pet peeves is drinking bottled water.  The bottles are made from oil, thus furthering our reliance on those non-renewable fossil fuels.  Bottled water is a hazard to our health: carcinogenic and endocrine disrupting toxins leach from the plastic into that expensive water and filtration standards are low to none at all.  In the bigger picture, the toxins from the plastic leaches into our ground water providing us with a second hit, not to mention the all of the other organisms that are also hit with the unpleasant and toxic exposure to our bottled water habit.  Check out this town that has become part of my dreams by banning bottled water all together.  The bottled water industry is even looking to sue the town over this.
