SWPLs absolutely love to drink bottled water . They carry their water bottles around with them everywhere.
But now, other SWPLs have banned the sale of bottled water in order to protect the environment. The residents of the town of Concord Massachusetts will have to drive to a nearby Costco in order purchase bottled water in bulk and lose the spontaneity of just picking up a bottle at the local store.
I wonder if Concord is going to go back to putting up around town those quaint devices known as drinking fountains:
With a little effort, I think we can all remember a bygone time when water fountains were ubiquitous. They could be found in parks, on school grounds, in public buildings, practically any place that could draw a crowd.

When I spoke to a representative from the Polaris Institute, an environmental group that lobbies strongly against bottled water, he told me that convincing people to buy something they can get for free was the biggest corporate scam ever perpetrated.
