Banning the Bottle
Palliser, Janna
Science Scope, v34 n2 p8, 10-11 Oct 2010
Bottled water is ubiquitous, taken for granted, and seemingly benign. Americans are consuming bottled water in massive amounts and spending a lot of money: In 2007, Americans spent $11.7 billion on 8.8 billions gallons of bottled water (Gashler 2008). That same year, two million plastic water bottles were used in the United States every five minutes (FWW 2007). Taking a closer look into the logistics of bottling water reveals the array of effects it has on the environment and communities. (Contains 5 online resources.)
