“After taking a wonderful hike today with my children at Roaring Run Recreation Area and picking up two bags full of plastic bottles, I wanted to mention a pledge we made as a family over a year ago to NEVER BUY A BOTTLE OF WATER AGAIN!!
It’s an amazing new fad, one of the most successful advertising hypes in recent history. Advertising for bottled water suggests that drinking water in plastic can make you thin, sexy, healthy, affluent, and environmentally responsible. Boy…are we drinking the Kool Aide!!
Take a moment to consider making a pledge with your own family. I know ALL of you have some sort of reusable water bottle lying around your house. If not, I’d be happy to pass on one of Pete’s Roanoke Outside water bottles for you to use. Just don’t buy into the hype that bottled water is healthier…it’s just an advertising ploy! Ok…just had to put it out there…enjoy the evening with your family and friends!”
