Bottled water is immoral!? We offer solution to the crisis!!!

19 02 2008

Drinking bottled water should be made as unfashionable as smoking, according to a [UK] government adviser.

“We have to make people think that it’s unfashionable just as we have with smoking. We need a similar campaign to convince people that this is wrong,” said Tim Lang, the Government’s naural resources commissioner.

Phil Woolas, the environment minister, added that the amount of money spent on mineral water “borders on being morally unacceptable”.

Their comments come as new research shows that drinking a bottle of water has the same impact on the environment as driving a car for a kilometre. Conservation groups and water providers have started a campaign against the £2 billion industry.

Why bother? Drink beer. Case solved!

I am especially partial to a good dose of Coopers. Mmmm…
