Drop that bottle!

I just stumbled upon an interesting tidbit on the NYTimes GreenInc Blog.

A couple of weeks ago, a town in Australia (yes, a WHOLE TOWN) voted to ban bottled water. Apparently 400 people showed up in support of the ban, and only 2 people voted against it. According to the blog article, the town will be installing free water fountains around town to replace the banned bottles.

The blog claims the reason behind the ban is to reduce carbon emissions associated with bottled water.

Another town in Belgium is making Thursdays a meatless day.

Check out the article, it's pretty interesting.

Now THAT is what I call activism!
