Bottled water is the true enemy 

SLO County needs to address something bigger than the Styrofoam issue. We are being charged for plastic bags, yet the sale of bottled water has soared. There is no campaign to stop the sale of bottled water. Did you know we are paying more per ounce for that water than gas? Tests have proven that bottled water is insignificantly different than most tap water.

Oil is used in the manufacturing of those bottles. There is no good news: The bottles fill streets, sidewalks, parking lots, and our landfill; they are eyesores everywhere. We are very green in SLO County. It is not enough to bring our bags to our stores; we need not focus on Styrofoam; we need to stop the real abuser: bottled water.
