water bottles

Our water is back! I am buying one (or two) of these…

The boil water order has been lifted for all communities affected by the ban – except Saugus (which needs more testing) – Got to the MWRA site for info on what to do next. MWRA

Here is a wonderful idea (I found it on Urban Daddy…why do I read this? Am I urban or a daddy? No, neither but they always find cool products and I just ignore the less applicable items – of which there are many). This is a dishwasher safe, freezable, reusable, collapsible (when empty) water bottle from the Vapur company. vapur water bottles on capability mom

Bottled Water Trend

It is really cool, earth-friendly and great – especially when the water from your tap is okay which ours now is. Off to flush the water lines!

The story of bottled water – watch this video and get your green on.

The Story of Bottled Water is a great short animated (both funny and sobering at the same time) film by the same people of The Story of Stuff Project.  It is a great (super kid and adult-friendly) way to see what impact water bottles have on the earth. Both films are narrated by Annie Leonard who  is an activist who “has spent the past 10 years traveling the globe fighting environmental threats…delivering a rapid-fire, often humorous and always engaging story about “all our stuff—where it comes from and where it goes when we throw it away.” ”  This was just released on March 22 and  has been featured in  Treehugger and The Huffington Post  among others. 

Check it out and share it with your friends. I just did. I shared it on Facebook and Twitter and now here.
