Friday Photo: Saint Mary Falls

I love this photo taken at one of the falls not far from Saint Mary Lake in Glacier National Park last weekend. An excellent trip, especially since most of the park attractions were shut down for the season and we practically had the park to ourselves. Definitely a great time of year to go visit.

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.

The next thing to put on your reading list

leave a comment »

The nice thing about working at Wend is that I get to read some pretty interesting books. This is the one I am currently working on and I must say that it’s proving to be a pretty compelling read. Where do I begin? Bottled water… ok, it’s what I drank all through Asia as to not get sick, but in the US I think it’s one of the most appalling inventions. And it’s not just because of the plastic. As author Elizabeth Royte points out in the opening chapter of Bottlemania: How water went on sale and why we bought it, there’s a moral question at play: should private companies be profiting off of a public resource? So read the book and come up with your own conclusions.
