No More Bottled Water for Blog Action Day

For Blog Action Day:
Are you still drinking bottled water? It's not safer than tap and it's causing so much wasted energy and pollution you can't even imagine it. Buy a filter if you must (I have one of these), and just buy an empty refillable bottle. So instead of paying five dollars for four cents of filtered tap water save yourself some money and save the environment some plastic.

That's the problem with plastic. It never goes away. Evey bit of plastic we've ever made is still out there, mostly clogging up our oceans. It leads to massive (about the size of Texas) floating islands of trash. Take a look at this. Do your part. Thanks!
