BAN THE BOTTLE

The popularity of bottled water seems to be going down the drain. In the past year, several U.S. cities asked their residents to turn on the tap and drink city water instead of bottled. 8.1. ____ In June, Gavin Newsom, the mayor of San Francisco signed a bill prohibiting city offices from buying bottled water and a number of state governments followed this example.

Why all the fuss about plastic bottles? Many people believe that producing and using bottled water wastes money and harms the environment. They say that bottled water is unnecessary because public water supplies in the U.S. are among the safest in the world. 8.2. ____ It takes about 1.5 million barrels of oil a year to make the 38 million plastic water bottles Americans use in that time. And, instead of being recycled, some 86% of empty water bottles land in the garbage and then in landfills, where they take years to decompose.

The makers of bottled water argue that plastic bottles make up a small portion of the nation’s total waste. 8.3. ____ Some companies are trying to find a solution, though. To lessen the impact plastic bottles have on the environment, they have begun, for example, to use thinner bottles.

Still, environmentalists want to encourage people to give up the bottle by offering free reusable containers to those who decide not to buy bottled water. 8.4. ____ They want to petition Congress to create a fund that will pay for improving the country’s public water systems. Clearly, the bottled water debate will continue flowing.
