Great environmentally friendly giveaway!

Alright, I am a sucker for things like this and I think this is a great giveaway.

Over at How doth the little crocodile she is giving away a very interesting reusable water bottle from vapur.com.


To quote her: "Have you heard about the global water crisis? Hopefully your answer is a big fat "YES!" and you've already started doing your part to stop it. If you haven't, well, it's time to get on the bandwagon! Bottled water has become a huge industry in the United States and around the rest of the world. Every year 38 billion water bottles go into landfills...38 billion! I can't even wrap my head around all the wasted land and resources that could be used instead of having disgusting dumps! Only 23% of water bottles used are recycled! It's ridiculous. You know what I say? Stop using disposable water bottles all together! If you aren't worried about landfills, then worry about oil! It takes 17 million barrels of it to make the water bottles in the US market each year! Oil that could fuel 1.3 million cars for a year."

I have forever been trying to get my friends and family to cut down on buying bottled water but it seems most people believe tap water is somehow tainted and buying gallons of bottle water and filling your own bottle isn't convenient enough. Here in NY state there is now a bottled water tax, you would think that would help cut down but it hasn't. I'm not saying I never ever buy bottled water or beverages but 95% of the time I don't. I would just like everyone to consider the impact something as simple as buying bottled water can have in a short period of time and consider making a switch!

I absolutely agree. Tap water has actually been proved to have far fewer health-compromising bacteria. It is treated, it has exceptionally high standards of monitoring and it is always fresh.
PLUS the waste involved in buying and manufacturing and disposing and transporting bottles.
There are people who would fight wars for the opportunity to turn on a tap and have clean water constantly and infallibly available.

I adore tap water. I only buy bottled water to have a bottle I can reuse and carry with me, so about once every 4 months.
I agree with Jen, I can't believe people exclusively drink bottled water when some people will walk miles for DIRTY water. It actually makes me really angry.

Very good points!

Rebecca- be careful with reusing bottled water bottles (that sounds funny doesn't it lol) because it can get tiny micro cracks in them which can grab and harbor germs!

I've used several different designs for water bottles but this one looks great. I love the spout on it!
