What’s the one thing aliens (or whomever) are sure to find after this thing we call “civilization” has long slipped into Earth’s turbulent past?
Water bottles. And lots of ’em.
I recently came across my first bottle of Dasani water in the “PlantBottle” introduced last year. CocaCola, owners of Desani, claims the new plastic material is made partially from plants and is 100 percent recyclable.
Some say it is a small step in the right direction.
Others say it’s greenwash and a step in the wrong direction.
Maybe the real core problem is the idea of putting water in a single-use container in the first place. But if we are going to use plastic water bottles, as we seem to do, then making them from materials with a even a slightly reduced environmental footprint is a good thing. Just don’t think it’s much more than a gesture in the right direction of what is really needed.
