Is it just me, or is this "bottled water" business getting out of hand? Don't get me wrong - I love bottled water just as much as the next guy. (Especially with those nifty little skinny crystal light packets - GENIUS!) But now we have to feel bad every time we drink out of a bottled water because water bottles buried in landfills can take up to 1,000 years to biodegrade and leak chemicals, yada yada yada. I'm no expert, but I already have cancer, heart disease and spinabifida in my family tree, so I'm not sure what a few plastic chemicals are going to harm, but whatever. (Yes, I want to leave a better world for my nieces and nephews and any children I might have - take a deep breath and don't take me so seriously, geez.) So now, instead of drinking out of the bottled water, we are supposed to use an aluminum one:
(I'm partial to the red one.) Or, we can spend a couple extra dollars and get a stainless steel one:
(This one is actually pretty sweet, right?) Or, we can use a Brita Fill & Go, which lasts for up to 57 uses:
OR -I just saw this today, we can now buy Water in a Box:
THIS JUST IN.....
There is something that has been around for ages - it doesn't harm the environment, take up space in a landfill or really even cost anything. If you're hardcore, you could even re-use it, which SAVES water in the long-run. (drumroll please.....)

My goal is to become a better friend to him. Baby steps people, baby steps.
