Last week I looked at my overflowing recycling bin and thought to myself what's wrong with this picture?
The answer was too much plastic of which a good amount was bottled water.
How much money do I spent weekly/ monthly on the stuff. I could not tell?
That's why when I visited Green Thing, a British site sharing ways to be 'practically green' with a healthy dose of humor and saw their Do August’s Green Thing. Ask for Tap I had to share it.
Their toolbox includes music, videos and good prose.
Here are 5 ways Green Thing suggests to resist the call of the 'bottled water' salesman:
- Your evil mineral water is clear but my conscience is clearer.
- Tut the pap tit who raps tip top tap.
- I’m a taposexual. I get a sexual thrill from turning taps on and off.
- Watch what you say you mineral mo-fo – I’m Spanish and a bad tap ass.
- Your water’s fabulous. Get it to me through a long copper pipe that finishes in a clever on-off valve, charge me 1000 times less for it and I’ll take some.
Who said being earth friendly had to be a chore?
Fun for Green Day #38
