Annie Leonard wants to redirect the flow of water. In her new Youtube video (which you can watch below) she takes aim at he bottled water companies, who, she insists, are "scaring us, seducing us, misleading us" into buying their products.
Americans buy more than 500 million bottles of water each week. Much of it is not as good as tap water, and 80% of the supposedly recyclable plastic bottles end up in landfills. Some brands are nothing more than bottled tap water, which you can get for free, but when sold in plastic bottles it costs 2,000 times as much as you pay for the water that comes out of your kitchen faucet. It even costs more than gasoline.
Maybe it's time, as Annie urges, to "take back the tap."
