The New Plastic – ingeo ™

While visiting Cape Cod this summer, I came across a new plastic made from plants.  I used it in the form of a water bottle from Green Planet Beverages.  The material is called (and trademarked as) ingeo.  It’s a biopolymer that can basically take the place of polystyrene and even glass.  AND it’s 100% petroleum free…which probably sounds pretty good to several pelicans in the Gulf right now. 

Might want to ask your local grocery to stock this water for those times your reuseable water bottle won’t work.

Town Bans Bottled Water – I love it!

Check out this story about a town that has banned bottled water!  And, of course, the bottled water industry is suing to make the town sell bottled water.  But if they put it on the shelves and no one buys it…is the town selling it?

Take Back The Tap!

This is a funny and informative video.  Dump those plastic bottles and start using reusable bottles for your tap water!
