Bottled Water Bans and Meat-Free Dayss

This is part of my life style. I am glad to see a town in Belgium do this.

By James Kanter Meat & WaterReuters A town in Belgium has established a weekly meat-free day, while an Australian suburb banned bottled water — both to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

The Australian town of Bundanoon, roughly 90 miles southwest of Sydney, voted to ban bottled water this week to reduce carbon dioxide emissions associated with bottling and transporting the water, according to Australian media.

Huw Kingston, a local businessman and the organizer of a campaign group, Bundy on Tap, said that 400 people turned up to the Bundanoon Memorial Hall to vote in favor of the ban, with only two casting dissenting votes, according to a report.

Free water fountains would be installed in the town to replace the bottled water, the report said.
