To Carry or to Not to Carry ???

  royal challengers   I was shell shocked when recently I was told at a posh restro that they dont serve "Normal water" and I will have to buy a bottle of mineral water. I was surprised that being such a posh restro how can they not just serve Tap water. Drinking unfiltered water at a road side eatery may not be a bright idea but at good restaurants it is the least expected from them to have proper water treatment method at place.   Whether it’s a shopping mall, gym or eating out at restaurants you are being forced to use "Bottled water." The bottled water no more is just the 'bottled water' but comes now in varieties like mineral, purified, spring, distilled, carbonated, oxygenated and vitamin-enriched and the list goes on. It’s the effect of this hype that bottled water industry has exploded in recent years, and enjoys annual sales of more than $35 billion worldwide.   royal challengers   Imagine the number of plastic bottles produced each year with that much money. Report says, Plastic water bottles can take 1,000 years to biodegrade. Though there has been a lot of word about recycling of these bottles, nine out of 10 water bottles end up as garbage or litter, and that means 30 million per day.   There is a popular video which shows the truth behind ‘Bottled water’ http://storyofstuff.org/bottledwater/   I am not saying that we should stop using the bottled water and switch to tap water all of a sudden. But, a suggested way can be to carry your own bottle from your home, its safe, clean and green!!! Even if this helps you reduce your consumption of purchased bottled water it is great.   I just hope, the restaurant I went doesn’t stops me drinking from my own bottle. If it does, I am not going there again.!!!   So, RCBians what do you suggest.....To carry or to not to carry ????

yes... we should carry our own bottles... Plastic is the main cause of our pollution problem... not just the plastic bottles but also other plastic items...

we can reduce the usage of plastic by using eco-friendly items like paper bags, recycled bottles etc..........
