As this era of global warming continues, awareness about the environment increases overtime and we may unconsciously label ourselves as environmentalists. Many alternatives are pursued to reduce some risk of global warming including the recently banning of bottled water sales. This news is said to be happening in one town located in Australia. So from your own prospective, should act like this be pursued? You can broaden your opinion by suggesting pros and cons regarding this issue.

This has been an issue for some time now! But in the USA we have a free enterprise system. I think as congress is looking to the suppliers to provide more info on their products, this is a good idea. But they should take it a step further and require a .05 cent deposit on all plastic containers. This would clean it all up very fast! tdemex

I think we they should not ban bottled water because this is the product I love because it is really handy to have water you carry everywhere. So what you suggest that we as a community must do to reduce plastic consumption?

I agree, it is such a great improvement that we banned containers made of Polythene and I think we should find other kind of plastic to ban instead of bottled water because water is a necessities. So what do you suggest that authorities must ban instead of bottled water?
