I was at a street fair in my home town on Saturday. They had a fountain on the side walk that said “Drink Locally.” there was a hose coming out the door of one the businesses to supply the “bubbler.” Way cool!
I see people buying cases of bottled water at the grocery store. It’s better than buying cases of sport drink. but still a total waste of money.
Yes, I know what you mean. Here in Germany people love sparkling water with its different bubbling levels and really, they can buy cages of 250ml! In the region where I live, the quality of tap water is even better than bottled water, but people still buy bottles, in number I don’t know the percentage but many are opting to buy SodaStream to make your own sparkling water as you wish, even with flavours (preferably not the ones they sell because is way too high in sugar) but I think is a great option to reduce the amount of money and plastic consumption.
Thank you for passing by 💚
