this interests me
As all water is not safe, as the water here in Mexico is sketchy,so I bought some metal thermoses for the distilled water we make through our watermaker on the boat.
Would love to give up plastic, although there aren't a lot of safe on the sea alternatives.
Have to go back to the middle ages before plastic was invented.
I wonder how they will be packaging and serving their water?

I just read the full article, and this is not very far reaching as much as a good analogy.
Thanks Cal ,Noted.

this is a good start and hopefully, like smoking bans, will gradually spread and become more widespread

It's a start, but only for water - the soda companies must be ecstatic.

Lexington/Concord, Massachusetts is famous for it's "shot heard around the world".....meaning the beginning of the of the Revolutionary War in the USA. Let us hope that this too out of Concord, Massachuestts will also be the start of a revolution of another kind.

Noted. Will they use glass bottles. stainless steel bottles, for those who still need to take water with them where-ever they go, and that is what most people advise when a person is traveling, camping, or commuting. The use of at home water distillers, water purifiers, and/or water filters in needed for many people who do not tolerate tap water. Even in the communities with the best tap water, some people do not tolerate the tap water -- for what-- ever reasons. Reasons might be what grows in the water between the supply and the person's home. Nothing like well and spring water -- and now that needs filtration in most places.
THIS IS GOOD NEWS -- THE BANNING OF PLASTIC BOTTLES. HOPE PEOPLE HAVE FUN AND GET THEIR FUNDING FOR THE ALTERNATIVES.

Water has memory, it will pick up the crap from within pipes, it will pick up the anger in the travel it has gone by, so before one drinks, one must put the love back into the water. As many pray before they eat, put the energy of kindness and love back into the water before you drink it, be it tap or otherwise. Some call it energy transference, prayer, or meditation, whatever is comfortable for you, this should be done before placing anything into ones body.
