Bottled Green

March 25, 2010

Bottled water is getting worse. More and more bottles are being made of a really thin, flimsy layer of plastic. The kind that folds and crinkles at the slightest pressure. And their caps are getting shorter -- they're harder to open now. I realize that they are saving money on plastic; and calling them ``eco-friendly'' makes their corporate thrift appear somehow saintly and trendy at once. But if I'm paying you money to put water in a bottle for me, the least you can do is use a decent bottle.
