Have you seen those Brita ads? "Two hours in a meeting' -- focus on empty water bottle -- "a lifetime in a landfill". I find them very affecting, or effective -- in other words, they really work on me. I thought of them the other day when I saw a huge recycling bag in front of our building filled with seltzer bottles. I mean, the thing was stuffed. It was like the remnants everyone's holiday hangover cure were being laid to rest in that see through bag of please-let-them-be-recycled bottles (because not everything is being recycled these days). So, I have a few suggestions. Of course there are the reusable water bottles for every day drinks. And for seltzer, my friend Karen showed me the wonder of Soda Stream. With it, you, too, can have excellent homemade seltzer (or soda) and no extra bottles. Here's to the bubbles!
