It’s 2009 and more people than ever before tote an eco-friendly and body-safe Sigg or Klean Kanteen bottle. The truth is, however, that many people across the globe still resort to plastic disposable bottles to get their 64 ounces a day. A town in Australia has had enough. In the first ban of its kind, Bundanoon residents nearly unanimously voted for banning the sale of bottled water. The campaign behind the movement, “Bundy on Tap,” proposes selling reusable bottles at the same price in an effort to ensure that local businesses don’t lose profit. Helping the environment and the water supply? We’ll drink to that.
