More of Less

Unrepentant wrote about plastic water bottles the other day. Poland Spring is trying to jump on the green bandwagon to address the water bottle issue Unrepentant wrote about. Here's what Poland Spring says about its new Eco-Shape™ bottle:

* Is made with 30% less plastic than the average half-liter bottle
* Features a new label that's 30% smaller
* Is 100% recyclable
* Is flexible so it's easier to crush for recycling
* Easy to Carry

We picked up one--it's a much lighter weight plastic. I don't know that it addresses the basic problem, though, of too much plastic polluting the earth. Less, yes. Sufficiently less? Not likely.

Like alcohol companies advising people to "drink in moderation."
