I used to always get funny looks when I took my mason jar full of tap water out of my bag. Lately I have noticed more people saying, “Oh that’s a good idea”.
It doesn’t stop at filling the landfills and oceans with something that never decomposes. If you were to fill one quarter of a plastic water bottle with oil, you would be looking at roughly the amount used to produce that bottle. Not to mention all of the pollution that occurs from the transportation of the water bottles. Millions of resources are wasted on bottled water every single day!

“How do you get Americans to buy more than half a billion bottles of water every week when it already flows from the tap?” Here is a great video by The Story of Stuff that explains more.
Here is a link to purchase an Earthlust re-fillable bottle that I swear by. It is recyclable too! – http://www.earthlust.com/
