US Mayors Nix Bottled Water
Posted by thebosun on June 25, 2008
According to an article at KOMO News, Delegates at the U.S. Conference of Mayors meeting in Miami voted to phase out regular use of bottled water for employees and functions. Who would have thought that the environmentalists would win a campaign to start fazing out bottled water, except during emergencies. We are truly living in a sound-bite environmentalist society.
The nation’s mayors voted Monday against spending taxpayer money to buy bottled water, a blow to the beverage industry that has enjoyed growing profit from water sales in recent years…….Gigi Kellett said, “It’s just plain common sense for cities to stop padding the bottled water industry’s bottom line at taxpayer expense.”
