Get Off The Bottle

banner_tapped_homeHere at the disinformation NYC offices we recently ditched our 5-Gallon water jugs and fitted a water filter cooler (tastes just as good, no more storage of those jugs – and it’s cheaper!). We were educated about the ills of the plastic bottles by filmmaker Stephanie Soechtig, whose movie Tapped we’ll be releasing on DVD this summer. Stephanie is here in New York for Earth Day and appeared on CBS Early Show this morning (video below). If you’re in New York, don’t miss an exclusive screening of Tapped at the Sunshine Theater this evening, preceded by a bottle exchange sponsored by Whole Foods, where the first 100 guests to bring an empty plastic water bottle to the event will receive cool Kleen Kanteen bottles in exchange and after that, people will receive coupons for 40% off Klean Kanteen stainless steel bottles (outside the theater at 6 PM).

    My Environmental Science Professor should see this.

  3. That much in 4 seconds. Hard to wrap my mind around that.
