If you have not yet read the article on America’s Toxic Waters published by the New York Times this week, may I suggest you check it out.

These individuals do not have a choice but to drink (and brush their teeth with) water out of plastic bottles because their tap water is toxic. Everyone has a right to clean drinking water.
