Conclusion: bottled water is NOT smart!
Meantime, I'm remembering what Bob Dylan had to say about advertising:
Advertising signs they conLife in our human world is largely based on the manufacture, consumption, and disposal of various items of "stuff," like plastic water bottles, that actually undermine the natural environment that sustains all life. Advertising helps this process move along at an ever more rapid pace. If we were truly "smart," we would ignore the pretty pictures, and look at what is really going on all around us:
You into thinking you’re the one
That can do what’s never been done
That can win what’s never been won
Meantime life outside goes on
All around you.
