Bottled Water Makes The Fish Sad 6

I have awesome friends.
Thanks to Shauna for bringing this to my attention…

Sad Fish

As I was sipping an Ice Mountain (owned by Nestle) bottled water today at a staff meeting, my colleague informed me that ice mountain is bottled in Northern Michigan and is depleting our natural resources at an alarming rate of something like a BILLION gallons of water a day. Anyways, it’s bad news! River’s are lower, fish are sad, squirrels are thirsty, birds are confused, etc etc no bueno no bueno. I’m sure some of you already have ‘cut it out’ (thanks uncle joey) with the whole drinking bottled water thing, applause for u. For the rest of you and myself included, let’s keep it old skool and use our faucets, it’s just as good for you, studies show.

    What about all of the people this employs? From the factory guys to the truck drivers to the convenience store owners. You are putting people out of work with your hippy movement. For shame!

    I stopped drinking bottled water after the Brita work-out commercial. It hit me like a ton of bricks, all the plastic that I was using.

    I drink tap water because it’s free (free at work, rest areas, gas stations, and other people’s houses). I think it tastes fine and if you don’t, reusable tap filters are an inexpensive solution. I also believe travel mugs are cool because they can keep your drink hot or cold, are resusable, and can depict your favorite pop star or sea creature.
    there are plenty of other jobs out there that people can get ruining the environment and contributing to frivolous consumerism.

    In our jurisdiction, they bomb the water with chlorine and ammonia. These are classified as carcinogens and have been removed from everything, yet we continue to drink it. I don’t want to think of the 100+ year old pipes through which the water travels prior to reaching the faucet … That said, companies like Nestle in Michigan have been raping our environment by sucking dry wells and other aquifers. Check out the film “FLOW: For the love of water”

      i’m sure it’s going to be an even larger issue as many larger cities struggle with turn of the century infrastructure replacement…
