Who would have thunk a water bottle could be trendy?

Sure, in the mid-'90s, it was way cooler to drink natural spring water from a recyclable bottle than from the communal faucet after a cardio workout at the gym. Water bottles were handy. They crumbled easily. They were recyclable. And they protected us from the horror stories that spread about water from the good ol' kitchen tap.

    "Trendy" is what you get when opportunists capitalize on a scam. Then all those mindless minions buy in on it. John Madden once commented on seeing all the bottled water on the NFL sidelines "Look at these guys and their bottled water. Whwn I was a coach, all we had was a hose, a bucket, and a dipper." Everyone in my house, except me, drink bottled water. When the 5 gal. container runs dry, and it's a few days before the next delivery, I secretly fill it back up with the hose. No one ever knows the difference.

    I really don’t want to be snarky but what in H*** doesn’t cause Cancer these day’s .The plastic bottles in question can be recycled easily. They are put in a press under tremendous pressure. Out comes ??? Surprise, surprisea clear liquid aka Bio Diesel. The leftover byproduct can be used for a number of products…Nothing vents to the atmosphere . As for the newGreen bottles how much energy is used in their manufacture. One needs toKeep an eye on the so-called recycling as it’s been reported that about 95%of our high tech scrap {I.e.} Computers, Key boards, Severs and numerouselectronics routinely end up in open dumps in Africa where small childrentear them apart in order to make money to live on… As most of the scrap isToxic you can see where this is going….
