New York City isn't the only place banning certain kinds of drinks. Concord, Massachusetts has just enacted a similar ban, but on an entirely different beverage. Water! That's right. You can't buy water in Concord any more. To be more specific, you can't buy single-serving bottled water in Concord. The reasons cited for the ban is the excessive use of fossil fuel to create these plastic bottles, many of which end up in landfills -- a completely unnecessary price to pay when tap water is readily available and perfectly healthy.
A heartfelt, nonsarcastic BRAVO to the Town of Concord for having the guts to pass such a law! New York, are you next?
