Break the Bottled Water Habit, Win a Prize and Cut Your Carbon

When you want pure, healthy drinking water, you should reach for bottled water, right? Surprisingly, on neither a personal nor a global level are you making a healthy choice.

For each gallon of water bottled, two gallons are wasted; producing the plastic wastes  the energy equivalent of a quarter-bottle’s worth of oil. And what’s in the bottle could just be tap water.

New American Dream and Corporate Accountability International is asking you to think about where the water in that bottle came from, where the plastic is going, and take the Break the Bottled Water Habit pledge(water.newdream.org) and drink to a healthy ecosystem.

During October, make a conscious choice to slake your thirst without drying up our planet’s resources. In addition to benefiting the environment, participants will have a chance to win a free condo for a week at a ski resort in Idaho.  Visit the website (water.newdream.org now to get started.

  1. Thanks for putting this article out there. I also discuss this subject on my Blog. I think it’s important that information gets put out on all different fronts. I wont link without permission, but if you’re interested, the post title is “Would you pay 4,000 times more for gas if it came in a bottle?”

    Keep up the good fight.

  2. I have been boycotting “disposable” plastic products for 18 months. Needless to say water in a bottle was one of the first to go. I have posted your campaign on my blog – hope it helps.
