Bottled Water

Here is an interesting video about bottled water. It is not kind to bottled water producers. One fact says that it takes enough oil to produce the bottles that could be used to make gas to fuel a million cars a year. One of the few times water is not good for the environment.  LINK

Reusable Grocery Bag Bacteria

They may be good for the environment, but reusable grocery bags are also a breeding ground for bacteria. Many responsible shoppers choose their groceries and put them into the same bags during each trip to the store. Bits of food and debris drop to the bottom and form a perfect haven for bacteria. New food becomes contaminated and provides new droppings for the germs already in the bag.

If you plan to use reusable bags, the best idea is to find some that are washable and wash them in hot water to kill those little buggers living in the bottom.
