Adios, Aquafina

Perrier is so passé. With top restaurants now serving tap, bottled water is poised to go the way of acid-wash jeans. And given the environmental costs of pumping, packaging, and transporting all that water, it's none too soon.

C3logo_3 If you pledge to break the bottled-water habit before the witching hour (11:59 p.m. EDT) tonight, you can win a chance at an outdoorsy getaway or other great prizes. Switching to reusable bottles is the Carbon Conscious Consumer action of the month from the Center for a New American Dream. Previous challenges have included eating locally, going car-free once a week, and junking your junk mail, actions that the Center estimates have collectively reduced more than 2.6 million tons of carbon dioxide thus far!
