Turning Back to The Tap

The Toronto Globe and mail has an excellent piece entitled Time to turn back to the tap? all about the concerns regarding the proliferation of bottled water in Canadian society. Interestingly enough according to the article Americans drank 31 billion liters of bottled water in 2006 and the production of these bottles required more than 17 million barrels of oil. At the recent price of $120 a barrel that is a tremendous amount of money being spent on a one use product that once disposed of may well end up in our waterways.
