Wouldn't this make a great ad for bottled water?
These are just some of the disposable beverage bottles littering one block adjacent to my son's school. To be fair, I should mention that there are a few other schools and plenty of residences on that block. And it is probably no more littered than other blocks in the area. But it is part of the reason that I am initiating the reusable bottle project at the school.
Notice that most of these are water bottles?
But apparently, Poland Spring is a good neighbor. According to their website:
"Poland Spring® Brand Natural Spring Water is proud to be part of the Nestlé Waters North America family of companies, who believe corporate responsibility is more than just good business – it's a bond we share with the communities in which we live and serve."They even have a "Good Neighbor Policy" which includes "Working collaboratively and sharing our passion for a clean planet." It is so 21st-century-America that they can say that, yet continue to pump out new plastic products, new must-have bottle shapes, non-recyclable caps, and heavy duty plastic wrappers for their multi-packs (I just had to sweep one of these from my sidewalk).
O.K., rant over.
