Including all the people using disposable, plastic water bottle in America, there are million of plastic just sitting in landfills. This article does a nice job of explaining the over all impact. Unfortunately, I felt like I was being whined to the entire blog. The worst part is that I felt like it was trying to guilt-trip me into using this system. A whinny guilt-trip comes off annoying and ineffective. But I do like the attempt to inform people.
