On a recent trip to Bangladesh, I brushed my teeth with bottled water and clenched my lips shut in the shower. It got me thinking about how fortunate we are to have clean water back home.
Around much of the world, it’s a luxury to turn on the tap and fill a cup with clean water. For many it’s unthinkable to rinse lettuce in the kitchen sink or add ice cubes to lemonade without fear of making someone sick.
So then, why do we buy so many little plastic bottles of water?
