Kick the Bottled-Water Habit

Here is some more information about bottled water that I got in an email yesterday.

Kick the Bottled-Water Habit This Week

Small steps ... Big impact
Simple ways you can live green. The planet will thank you.

Kick the bottled-water habit at home:

Annual Savings: $144
Annual CO2 Savings: 600 pounds

You'll save 180 gallons of water per year by drinking tap or filtered water instead of bottled. That's because it takes 1.3 gallons of water to make every 1-quart plastic bottle. users who go bottle-less will help reduce the boggling number of thrown-away bottles (over 20 billion per year); only 1 of 6 gets recycled.
