Green Your New Year's Resolution: Get Off The Bottle

Water bottle Happy new year! You may have already committed to the bulk of your resolutions, but deepening your shade of green will do us all good. This week, we’ll be giving you easy-to-stick-to ways to make 2009 greener.

Tip #3: Get Off The Bottle

Buying bottled water might seem convenient. But after considering all the oil it took to make and ship and the watersheds that were affected, it begins looking like a pretty bad idea. Once you learn that Americans spend $9 billion on bottled water annually – more than what it would cost to get clean water to every person in the world – we're betting you'll want to switch to tap.
