The story of bottled water

I watched The Story of Bottled Water a couple years ago and it has stuck with me ever since. I knew most of the behind story, but there was still new information in this video. I didn’t, for example, have any idea about what happened to recycled plastic bottles. The video may seem a bit long, but it’s illustrated and narrated so well that the time goes by quickly. I strongly urge you to watch the whole video, from start to finish, and share it with others. You can go to The Story of Stuff Project website to learn more about this topic and a whole bunch of other “stuff”.

I am a hug fan of these videos. The 10 minutes or so always fly’s by. And I think they’re something you can watch year after year as solid reminders of why we should think twice about what we buy. Thanks for the reminder.

Thank YOU, Brigitta, for commenting and visiting! I’m so happy for these videos and I think I’ll be posting others in the future. 😉

I agree with Brigitta, the ten minutes are packed full of information and we can come back in about a year and relearn/learn something new that we didnt see in first place.

I had to watch this for my english class and at first was not looking forward to it but after I’d watched it, I was totally glad I did! I actually ended up watching all the videos on that website because I was so moved by it. It really makes you think twice about being wasteful.

Haylee – That’s awesome! I’m thinking I’ll be posting many of their other videos on my blog in the future.

This is good. I would get water filter though.

Currently looking for glass water filter.

Design Squish – That’s a great suggestion. I drink straight from the tap here in Switzerland, but in America I always had a water filter. Good idea about getting a glass one. Our plastic one started falling apart.
