I heard a great interview on NPR the other day. It was (Bottled Water: A Symbol of US Commerce, Culture) with Charles Fishman, author of an article published in Fast Company magazine about the bottled water industry. His article is entitled "Message in a Bottle." I was going to try to write a post about what I learned about bottled water, but then I saw another blogger already did a great job so I am just linking her.
Unplug Your Kids heard the same interview and did a great post.
Then there is this information about plastics leaching chemicals into your water. Read this if you and your kids drink from plastic bottles especially!
