Weening Off The Bottle

The Center for A New American Dream has a fall campaign "Think Outside the Bottle" to help you change your family's bottled water habits.

You take a pledge to use a reusable water bottle instead of buying bottled water AND to find ways to support healthier local public water programs.

The Center also has five fabulous reasons why you should give up bottled water -- the short version is ...
  1. "At least 40 percent of bottled water is tap water anyway."
  2. "Your tap water is fine to drink."
  3. "Bottled water is expensive!"
  4. "Bottled water is full of oil."
  5. "Disposable plastic water bottles are not meant for multiple uses."

Read more about the reasoning behind each of these five points here.
