City of Seattle Bans Bottled Water


The City of Seattle has internally banned itself from buying bottled water. This is terrific news, because governments have a huge role to play in creating markets, supporting markets, or KICKING MARKETS IN THE SEAT OF THE PANTS! And that’s just what the city government has done. Good work, team. That’s $58,000 a year you can spend on something better. (As a side note, I’m looking for a job…)

At roughly $1/bottle, that’s 58,000 water bottles per year that the city government alone needed to recycle or throw away. That’s insane.
