I think this a great alternative to single use plastic water bottles. Eventually though I’d love if we could get back to a place where we rely on tap water to meet our hydration needs. Having better access to municipal water in our public spaces would be a place to start, so environmentally minded parents, like the ones that hosted the party we attended today at a local park, don’t have to lug 5 gallon bottles of water around in order to provide the healthiest drink option to party goers.
