An Anthropologist’s View of Disposable Water Bottles … From the Future

May 14, 2009 at 1:40 pm 1 comment

We found this video about how a future civilization would look back upon our behavior of using disposable water bottles.  It’s a bit cheeky, but makes a great point  – how is it we make such bad decisions in the present-tense when we can project how unhealthy, inefficient, and downright dumb they are.  Use REUSABLE WATER BOTTLES!!!  Our tap water is held to higher standards than the bottling industry (we wrote about this in our previous post Bottled Water and Tap Water – The Differences and Similarities.)

If you don’t have the 2 1/2 minutes to watch the video, here’s is the big idea to take away: it takes almost a 1/2 liter or oil and 3 8oz bottles of water to make one disposable plastic bottle…so that we can get 8oz of hydration and then throw away precious resources.  Not smart.
