The Story of Bottled Water

Annie Leonard just released her latest movie The Story of Bottled Water. Like her first movie The Story of Stuff, it is well worth a look.


  1. We don't do bottled water anymore- quit a couple of years ago. We have three Sigg bottles that we use-one by my side of the bed, one in my pack, and a third for the car, which we wind up sharing. Actually, come to think of it, Steve drinks out of my night bottle all the time. Guess it's a good thing we're married....

  2. Congrats on kicking the bottle. Bottled water has always seemed a bit weird to me. I've joked with Eric I was going to create a line of bottled water called either "Tap" or "From the Hose". But I did have an affection for Calistoga's lemon bubbling water. I used to buy the glass bottles of my favorite elixer and drink about one a day. Then Calistoga started using plastic bottles. I was heartbroken, but found myself slipping into a bad habit and occasionally grabbing a bottle every now and then.

    Then I recorded an interview with Captain Charles Moore for a popular NPR program. He talked about the North Pacific Gyre, a remote part of the Pacific Ocean completely filled with plastic garbage. I gave up Calistoga for good after that.

    Hear Captain Charles Moore's talk on TED.
