Vote for Water

with 2 comments

Doesn’t matter who you’re voting for, you still need to give up that bottled water addiction. At least that’s the stance Tappening takes. Because America uses 17 million barrels of crude oil a year just to make disposable plastic water bottles, the ad campaign advocates drinking tap water and getting the issue of bottled water on the political agenda.That’s a good thing considering how many of those plastic bottles end up in landfills, the ocean and beyond. Consider that next time you go to pull a bottle off the shelf.

Find out more about Tappening here and check out more of their ads here.

  1. Plastic bottles and the environment is not always such a easy calculation — take, for example, the overall sustainability argument that this wine maker has for switiching from glass to plastic bottles: http://plasticsindustry.blogspot.com/2008/10/plastic-wine-bottles-chosen-for_21.html

  2. But take a look at who is publishing that information: The Plastics Industry Trade Association. Of course they want you to believe that using plastic is a good choice!
