According to Forbes Magazine, globally we buy 1 million plastic bottles per minute and 91 percent of them are not recycled. Our government should be setting an example  by offering reusable water bottles or pitchers of water and glasses at its hearings. Many people have taken an interest in Congressional hearings and as such, see the the people in these hearing use the ubiquitous single-use water bottles, instead of something more sustainable. I’m sure Congress uses many water bottles, and changing to something more sustainable could make an impact, and this small change could set an important example and alter behavior beyond the halls of Congress.
