Urge the City of Los Angeles to ban the sale of bottled water to save money and the environment
This petition had 137 supporters
Bottled water has become very popular in recent years. It is convenient and easy to carry. However, it comes with a price.
At nearly $2 per bottle, bottled water costs between 340 and 10,000 times the rate of tap water. Bottled water comes with an environmental price too.
California alone sees over a billion bottles in the trash in just one year. A bottle takes up to one thousand years to biodegrade once it sits in a landfill!
Transporting bottled water from the factory to the stores uses over 1.5 million barrels of oil per year. That's enough to fuel 100,000 cars for that same year!
Please urge our nation's second largest city to set an example. Protect the environment. Save your money!
