I have a rather large house, but keeping two weeks worth of bottled water on hand would be almost impossible.
I have a brita filter on the kitchen tap and a jug for the fridge. I love those things.

I don't know if all that's true, but I'm like you...I re-use my little bottles all the time. I feel guilty if they only get used once and then end up in the recycle bin. I figure they are worth more than once use.

Also, If you don't microwave your food with plastic wrap, then don't leave your water out where the sun will touch it.. You'd be paranoid enough not to.

Seriously? You should visit the Nordic countries then. The water tastes amazing!

I don't mind the fluoride to be honest. The amounts that are in the water are very minimal in my country, so there are no harmful side effects. I also use hormonal birth control so estrogen doesn't worry me either.

It's ALL still part of the water shed, anyway. Bottled water isn't some magical new liquid, it's the same damn stuff that's been here since this little blue ball started into orbit.

It's not about what's safer or what's cheaper, it's about freedom of choice. How is it the City's business what kind of water people buy? It always starts with bottled water and ends with forbidding women to straddle motorcycles.

^ i'm really wondering if anyone actually read the article though.. They're mainly concerned about the bottles ending up in the ocean. Haven't seen anyone discuss this or how effective the ban would be for the environment.

There are two large cities in Alberta, Edmonton and Calgary. If things are the same as they used to be, Edmonton adds fluoride to the water, Calgary does not. Check out the actual, factual results with dentistry. Edmonton has WAY less cavities in it's citizens than Calgary does. Dentists thrive in Calgary.

Oh, as a side note: RnR lives in neither Edmonton or Calgary, he lives in 'Stop and Pee Alberta', known as such because it's roughly half way between the two major cities.

Re: Concord, Massachusetts Bans Sale of Small Water Bottles

More money making absurdities Plastic bottles are supposed to be recycled - enforce doing that rather than an outright ban and possible fine

Yeah, but if you're buying little bottles all the time, why not just buy 2 or 3 really large ones and cut down on the waste. I get both points, but I'm with you on hating how everything in our daily life is trying to be controlled.
