Bottled Water: An Update
Good news regarding my war against bottled water. According to Associated Press, Bundanoon, a small rural town in New South Wales, Australia, 100 miles south of Sydney, has officially banned the sale of bottled water. This coming on the same day that the state government of New South Wales banned the purchase of bottled water by any state departments or agencies, calling it a waste of money and natural resources. "I have never seen 350 Australians in the same room agree on something," said one of the leaders of the campaign in Bundanoon. "It's time for people to realize they're being conned by the bottled water industry."
It would appear many of our friends down under have their heads on straighter than many Americans. So allow me to say, in true Aussie form, good on ya New South Wales. Keep up the good work, and hopefully more cities, states, and countries will soon follow suit.
