BOTTLES UP!!!
Europeans lead the world in drinking bottled water, but they've got plenty of company. People are switching to water from other drinks, helping pump up global demand from 28 to 47 billion gallons between 2000 and 2006. But a lack of public recycling bins that many single-serve empties get trashed. By one estimate, U.S. drinkers toss 60 million plastic water bottles a day. If the environmental costs -- such as the greenhouse gasses released to make and ship so many bottles - don't change habits, think of the bottom line. Sixteen ounces of bottle water can cost more than a dollar; from the tap it's less than a penny.
