Take Back the Tap!

In honor of  the first anniversary of Timberland’s ban on bottled water (give or take a month), we give you the Story of Bottled Water by  Annie Leonard.  Annie is the same woman whose Story of Stuff inspired us to take a critical review of our spending and consumption habits, and she’s done it again with this thought-provoking video on the bottled water industry.  Her explanation of “manufactured demand” (a phenomenon not limited to the bottled water industry, by the way) is reason enough to take 8 viewing minutes out of your day.
