National Geographic Fresh Water Site

For a few months, National Geographic has dedicated a section on their website to Fresh Water topics – including the implications of bottled water. They recently added an interview with Peter Gleick, author of Bottled and Sold: The Story Behind Our Obsession with Bottled Water. The points he makes are not altogether new but the facts are and it is definitely an interesting, quick read from an expert on bottled water waste.  He suggests that there are four reasons that bottled water grew in popularity:

  1. Convenience
  2. Disappearance of Drinking Fountains
  3. Fear of Tap Water
  4. Aggressive Marketing of Bottled Water and Against Tap Water
