Remember When 

Before Bottled Water


August 2, 2017

Do you remember before bottled water? Can you even imagine what our parents and grandparents would have had to say if anyone would have mentioned a business of bottled water! Of course, if it was a business, there would have to be a charge for it and just who in their right mind would pay for a glass of water?

I am sure that plastic bottles were unheard of, and if you did have bottled water, it would have had to have been in glass containers.

And my question is, would glass bottles be better than plastic? Would there be more recycling with glass bottles, would glass containers be better for overall health? So many pros and cons.

One thing that I am sure does help the litter is carrying your own water container, cup or jug. Now I have a hard time keeping track of my purse and/or cell phone, so just not sure carrying a cup will work, but then maybe someone will come up with a chest harness that I could carry my insulated cup in and it would be equipped with a reusable straw and I would be set to go.

With our present weather, water is most important so whatever works for you is great. Stay hydrated and look for the trash can.
