Quarterly Report: Water, water everywhere

Okay, not exactly. Water bottles make up 3% of the recycling we find, although the real number is likely to be much higher due to MIA labels.  Bottled water is a controversial topic in the world of conservation: in developed countries, water from the tap is perfectly safe to drink and therefore bottled water is unnecessary (if you remember to carry around a reusable bottle of course).  Some places have gone so far as to ban bottled water, and we’re still shocked that it is one of the items that we actually saw being littered.  Whatever your feelings about the product, there certainly are a number of brands – these are the ones we’ve found so far in 2015:
