"The rationale for buying bottled water is a fantasy that has a destructive downside. These companies are marketing an illusion of environmental purity."
National Resources Defense Council (NRDC) spokesperson in the New York Times.
"It's ironic that on some of the labels of the bottles, you see snow-capped mountains and glaciers when in fact the production of the bottle is contributing to global warming, which is melting those snowcaps and those glaciers."
(NRDC spokesperson in the Washington Post)
