Beach Walk 495 – Bottled Water Myths

You know how I love to use information to inform my behavior and beliefs.

I recently read an article in The Week exposing a lot of facts about the bottled water industry. Some I was aware of – like some bottled water is just tap water – not to be confused with true spring water from underground sources. But a lot of it I was not aware of – like 90% of the Eastern Garbage Patch is plastic, largely plastic water bottles. So I am going to reduce, reuse and filter my own water as much as possible. It just makes good sense. Watch this episode to learn some other amazing facts about the carbon footprint of water bottles.
