The Environmental Impact of Bottled Water

I’m going to run off on a bit of a tangent from our normal theme and am looking to get some help about writing a blog post to do with the Environmental Impact of Bottled Water. On Monday it would appear that there will be a broadcast going out on BBC1s Panorama program about this subject.

Cheers in advance.
