Love the ones that have the bottle fill gizmos… but don’t see them very much on the East Coast.

Another way to save water and money and reduce pollution is to ask restaurants to give you cups you can fill at the water fountain, especially if you ask for nondisposable cups or glasses. The water is just as good and free. Sometimes you have to use the soda fountain that dispenses water, which is fine too. I would love to see a campaign to get more restaurants to do this… to have cups you can you that are not throw away cups.

I’m glad the city is making this a campaign – especially since bottled water is so environmentally un-friendly. Nice post.
