Generally the media focus has not been on the high cost of this bottled water-often just purified municipal tap water. Interesting that the media didn't really focus on that. No, it's been on the waste and lack of recycling options. We're surprised that they haven't blamed farmers and ethanol for expensive water too.
But what's really interesting is the lack of reporting on alternatives to the oil-based bottles. Specifically, water bottles like the ones from BIOTA. The BIOTA Spring Water bottle is manufactured from a 100% renewable resource, corn, using Poly Lactic Acid (PLA) technology. PLA-based products have started to become popular-replacements for oil-based plastics by a number of influential food and retail companies.
Maybe we've expecting too much from the media to report something practical.
