How did we fall for this to begin with?

If the toll on the environment isn't enough to turn you off bottled water and get you turning on the tap, perhaps a little summer reading on the subject will do the trick. We're adding MacArther Fellow and freshwater expert Peter Gleick's new book to our summer reading list. In Bottled and Sold: The Story Behind Our Obsession with Bottled Water, Gleick chronicles how water went from a free natural resource to one of the most successful commercial products in less than a century. Read The Washington Post review on it here and find a great deal on a used copy or Kindle download here.

And of course we highly recommend adding Peter's blog to your feed.
