Bottled Water

Take a look at this article and see what it takes to bring you bottled water. Interesting. Scary. Wrong?

Summed up very well in this article on Boing Boing focusing of Fiji Water, topical here in New Zealand now :

"Fiji Water produces more than a million bottles a day, while more than half the people in Fiji do not have reliable drinking water."

The latest Listener has an article on bottled water in the same vein. Also mentions next summer NZ will release a water with brand name Good in a biodegradable container designed to break down in 80 days. My own personal solution now is to fill a small thermos with filtered tap water.

My god, that article was an eye opener!

Our tap water is pretty good any way. For me, it is the sparkling water that I like, we are currently experimenting with a soda syphon - not quite the same, but nice enough.
