Bottled Water Is Bullshit – Canucks Edition

Darren Facebooked earlier today about his disappointment at seeing Canucks-branded bottled water in stores recently – you know, given that bottled water is a “lousy, wasteful product,” (or, as I like to say – bottled water is bullshit).

Just the other day I’d been in Save-on-Foods and saw the exact product he was talking about – they are selling bottles of water with pictures of various Canucks players on them. Now, despite the fact that I don’t buy bottled water because I completely agree with Darren that it is wasteful and stupid – we have the best quality water in the world coming right out of our taps, with no need for environmentally unfriendly plastic and transportation of said water-filled plastic bottles – I’m embarrassed to say it didn’t occur to me to think “this is stupid.” Instead, what I thought when I saw these in the store was:


… “Wow, they drew different pictures for Daniel and Henrik Sedin. I totally would have just used the same one and put their different numbers on their sleeves!”

Priority FAIL!


My Greeny Valentine

Raul is having a contest where you write about what you are going to do to make your Valentine enviro-friendly and thenyou are entered into a draw to win a snowshoeing tour at Cypress Mountain (complete with chocolate fondue in a quaint little wooden hut).  And I’ve always wanted to go snowshoeing!

My dilemma, however, is if I blog about what I’m going to do for a green Valentine’s Day, it will ruin the surprise for my Valentine, who reads my blog.  What are you trying to do, Raul, ruin everyone’s V-Day?

But I *really* want that free snowshoeing tour.  Let’s see… can I be cryptic?  Hmm… turning the lights out saves energy, right?  Some nice soy-based candles are eco-friendly, yes?  (Also, I use rechargeable batteries for… things, so that counts for something.  TMI?)  😉

Free snowshoeing tour, please!
