Plastic Bottled Water: Banned in San Francisco

Ban the Bottle

San Francisco, CA has just joined Concord, MA in banning the sale of single-use plastic bottled water. San Francisco’s ban was spearheaded by the Think Outside the Bottle Campaign, who successfully pressured city Board of Supervisors into adopting the ban.

For the moment, the San Francisco ban only applies to sales that occur on city property, however, according to Board of Supervisors President David Chiu, more restrictions may follow in the future. Chiu stated last week that: “If we can do this on public property and folks understand that this is absolutely doable, then we can look at next steps.”

Enough with the Snow Already!

Snowy New England

I know I speak for every member of the AquaHealth team when I say that we are proud to live and work in New England. That being said, after getting nearly three feet of snow in the past week, it would not be an understatement to say that we are all very jealous at the moment of our colleagues in the Las Vegas office. After what we have been through, the high of 48 degrees and sunny we are expecting on Saturday sounds absolutely tropical.

Also, if you’re wondering….the picture is above is a table currently residing in snowy Massachusetts. The amount of snow covering it is not photoshopped or altered in any way shape or form. Ridiculous…

Sochi Water: Unfiltered

Sochi Water

Between missing manhole covers, teams of men shooting dogs in the street, and a shortage of pillows for the athletes, the beginning of the Sochi Olympics has been an unmitigated disaster. And then there is the quality of the water. The photo above is the water from the sinks in the hotel bathrooms around Sochi, which as you can see is a yellowish-brown color. You don’t need to be a water filtration expert like one of the AquaHealth technicians to know that water should not be brown.
