They don’t have an International Bottled Water Association for nothing.

As for wasting digital space, do you know how many buckets of coal had to die for you to post your comment? O, the humanity!

Google is dropping many food and beverage products to rein in the cost of their cafes and microkitchens. I know several companies who have had their products dumped with no notice and no regard for the impact on those small businesses.

But there were also pitchers of water at each table, so that seemed the “greener” way to go and what they’re encouraging.

The bottlers convinced us that we needed their product. Very clever. I have been fighting the bottled water industry, namely, Nestle – Arrowhead – for the last 6 years. They are still trying to take spring water from the “source” all over the country. When they do that, they destroy the local ecology and often water sources that are available to the citizens for their own use. People in the depressed communities, where Nestle comes in for the kill, are convinced that the economy of their small, rural towns will improve once they have the jobs from Nestle. Once Nestle establishes a footprint, they tie up these small towns with limited resources, for years in court. Then, it also goes without saying that this fresh, spring water is encased in a petroleum product, plastic bottles. Who would want to drink the stuff? It’s not regulated. Let’s bring back the drinking fountains!

This betrayes their attitude or helps save a big money?
