A report today by ABC News claims that Minneapolis, MN, Ann Arbor MI, San Franscisco, CA, and Salt Lake City, UT have banned bottled water. Why? It's B-A-D for the environment.
According to the report by ABC News we throw away more than 30 billion plastic water bottles a year, which is enough to circle the Earth 150 times. And if you think lots of people are recycling, think again. Four out of five plastic bottles end up in landfills--but not before they travel 2,500-5,000+ miles where they're stored in your local, energy-hogging store until you drive your car to the store, buy the water, and drive back home.
