To the editor:
They are everywhere you look, more ubiquitous than cell phones - and at least as deadly. People everywhere are buying water in bottles. I was recently at a grocery store when I noticed, to my horror, that at least half of my fellow shoppers had bottled water in their carts.
These bottles rarely get recycled. There is an island floating in the sea bigger than Texas that consists mostly of these discarded water bottles. The water in these bottles is the same as you get out of the tap, for the most part. You can upgrade if you want by buying your own water filter.
Please consider Mother Nature, and don't buy bottled water!
