Restaurants, Mayors Toast Earth Day with Tap Water

From Corporate Accountability International:

BOSTON – Prominent restaurants and mayors kicked Earth
Day off early this year by cancelling bottled water contracts and instead
promoting local tap water. The move has been part of a nationwide effort, dubbed “Think Outside the Bottle,” that exposes the social and environmental impacts of bottled water.

“Restaurants have always showcased the highest standards of cuisine and new culinary innovations,” said Henry Patterson, owner of The Other Side Café in Boston. “Now we are reducing waste and encouraging more sustainable eating practices when we serve safe, clean and reliable water from the tap instead of its higher priced, bottled alternative .”

Once in a while it's good to think society is actually making some sort of environmental progress.

That's about all I can say.
