Your signature has been recorded - I did that, and I have eliminated most plastic use from my home. Left overs are wrapped in foil, that is then either reused or washed for recycling. We all need to do the little things that will lead to big things. Some how, my grand mother cooked meals for 11 people, never wasted any food, or carried a bottle of water to take a walk or drive to the store.

S & N. NEVER buy bottled water - can't stand the waste. Any liquid tastes better in glass anyway.

I don't drink bottled water of any sort. Plastic has done more genetic damage than has been realized to date. I remember the words of one pediatrician who was interviewed on NOVA. The program was about how plastic was confusing the genetic sexual orientation code of everything but specifically of fish and alligators. Her comment was "How do I tell my son he will never have a penis any longer than two centimeters?"
Today plastic is ubiquitous and pervasive. How much longer before we actually start seeing gross changes in humans? Keep eating and drinking all those estrogen laced foods and liquids too. Goodness knows what else they've laced it with.

The only advantage of plastic is that dropping it doesn't threaten to cut your foot. But it does threaten your health.

Anyone who buys bottled water when they have safe drinking water from their tap is a moron. Consumer Reports named NYC tap water the best drinking water in the world, and yet many people buy bottled water there.

All plastic bottles need to be removed from the market place not just water bottles they take up to much space in the land fill plus these bottles give off gas that contaminate what ever they are use for. =^..^=

I echo what others have said..."It used to be this way..it could and should be again." I can smell the chemicals in plastic.
Never could before but now everything is sooo different. Carry this a step further ... .... use glass storage
containers.....(Hopefully glass will remain untainted) Thankz for info

I am slowly replacing my plastic food containers with glass. To do so all at once would be expensive for me. The only time I buy a plastic water bottle is when I'm traveling.

Where ever i go i'm always picking up plastic bottles & cans, on city streets, shopping centre car parks & saddest of all through nature reserves & parks. If only everyone picked up & recycled... *sigh*

Signed, noted, and shared on Facebook. We haven't bought bottled water for several years, have our own refillable bottles we take with us. I hated drinking out of plastic bottles to begin with, then when I discovered how much damage they were doing to the earth, I quit buying them.

I remember that when I was a child, in shops you bought most drinks in glass bottle and could bring back those bottles to the shop to be cleaned, reused and recycled. It was far much better. A pity that this practise was abandoned.

I have been using a couple of glass bottles that I bought online a few months ago. I looked at "Glasstic" bottles & a few other brands. I settled with Rive's line. http://youtu.be/YxJCaZh9obc I will say that it's best to hold it or not lie it on its side. I've had a couple of occurrences with water leaks in my school backpack. However, I have been using it (wear & tear happens) and won't be deterred from glass. In the long run, it's healthier for myself and the planet.

I have written to supermarkets and MPs suggesting we switch to the European model of re-usable plastic bottles (I know, I know, it's still plastic), jars etc. (glass can also be used) that are returned to the supermarket, and a pre-paid deposit returned. It would cost to set up, sure. But it would create jobs because these bottles then have to be sorted and returned to the manufacturers. Heavier duty plastic is needed than what we have here. It works in other places really well. I was told that cost was the issue. That might be true in the short-term, but in the long-term it may work out way cheaper!
