I know. You were not expecting to see a picture of KY Jelly on my blog.
But the thing is, I have this eco-celeb friend named Stephanie Soechtig. She made the excellent film called Tapped, about bottled water.
Anyway, Stephanie is traveling across the country the country with her film, doing a wonderful job explaining why we should get off bottled water.
(Because it is bad for us and bad for the planet, by the way. See here.)
Turns out the poor woman checked into a motel one night on her tour and the previous night's resident left her a housewarming gift. Bluck!
What one has to do to save the planet!
There's a not-so-new boogeyman in town and it's the bottled water business, whose troubling tentacles are persuasively exposed by director Stephanie Soechtig in her compact, clear-headed documentary "Tapped." Soechtig's cautionary tale is well supported by interviews with a variety of activists, environmentalists, community leaders and, especially, several small-town residents whose health and welfare have been compromised by the encroachment of the bottled water industry. If their stories don't persuade you to ditch the Dasani, vivid shots of how water bottle refuse is turning our oceans into "plastic soup" should do the trick.
