How Oil And Water Do Not Mix
With thanks to the Harper's Index, August 2007:
Estimated amount of oil, in barrels, used to make the bottled-water containers sold in the U.S last year: 16,000,000.
Ratio of the amount of water used to make the containers to the amount of bottled-water consumed: 2:1.
(A barrel of oil contains 42 gallons, and produces about 20 gallons of gasoline.)
Here are a few more fun facts about the waste of money and energy in the bottled water craze.
Anyone out there on the right fringes of the Blogosphere - - and you know who you are - - want to continue to defend the bottled water industry?
