I hate to be caught on the side of an environmental group that might turn out later to be full of nuts, but I have to say this is a good point:
A Boston-based consumer and environmental group is bringing its campaign against bottled water to four states, urging them to cut hundreds of thousands of dollars from strapped budgets by ending their purchases of water in plastic containers.
Corporate Accountability International took aim at state agencies' purchases of bottled water in Connecticut, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania and Vermont. It urged the states to have their public employees drink tap water and step up efforts to protect public water supplies.
The poor, downtrodden public employees might have to drink -- gasp! -- tap water? Maybe one of you, by the way, could explain bottled water to me, which seems like one of the biggest scams ever perpetuated.
