It seems that buying bottled water is not very good for the planet.

I just learned at GRIST -- see Avoid the bottled water blues -- that “Production of plastic water bottles requires three times the water the bottle will eventually hold. That’s not even getting into the 17 million barrels of oil or the 2.5 million tons of carbon dioxide resulting from plastic bottle production.”

What's the solution? Use a home filter and carry your own water as you travel about. Buying bottled water is a convenience habit.
