The U.S. uses 2.5 million single-use water bottles every hour! The Obama Administration should voluntarily set a good example for the rest of us and do this to help promote sustainability and reduce pollution.

Good point. Though I do wonder about the photo they say brought this topic up. I don't see any labels on the bottles, so can't say for sure if they are single-use or are reusable. Has anyone asked?

Thanks Cal. I thought being the Presidential family the Obama's would be up on everything politically correct, especially when it comes to the environment! Or is it just me?

I don't sign Change.org petitions any more - but I do support the call to stop using plastic bottles at the White House. The First Family needs to set the example for the rest of America!

Obama, far from being called a conservationist, this is not surprising.
