Couple of weeks ago, SCG-er Devgon Vishal shared with me link for the video which made me think & forced me to do some research BUT the most importantly I did take an action and changed my habit afterward.
It has all started with this “habit changing” video! [at least for me]
After watching Story Of Bottled Water, I went into our kitchen’s pantry and I have seen a “collection” of plastic bottles which were destined to be thrown out.
[see an authentic picture which I have taken bellow]
Then, it has really hit me! I have sat for a while, reflected & asked myself:
15 years back I have been drinking only tap water, even during my basketball practices or games. Why the heck, do I need to drink bottled water, now?
How I became “Tapped”
During the same day I told my parents that I don’t want them to buy for me any bottled water anymore. I went to the local grocery shop>>> picked up fresh limes, ginger and fresh mint leaves >>> came back home and made my delicious TAP water drink.
Now, it is my second week of being “tapped”. And I am really enjoying it. Even my parents are slowly switching to tap water;-)
Who is with me on this?
If your local tap water is drinkable and without any health risks for you, join me! One by one we can make difference. I am doing my bit.
I am happy that I have evolved little bit in this water awareness area, too! And to carry on with learning, I am intrigued to watch following documentary as well.
I was pretty clear on NOT drinking any sugary sweet soft drinks for many years. For those of you, who are still hooked up to drinking sweet coke-like drinks, I highly recommend you to read two super cool posts by Garr Reynolds. First is about How he gave up sugary drinks himself and second one is about Visualizing the consequences of sugary drinks. [Just in case you don’t have time to read Garr’s post, right now]
Let me give you helping hand by attaching a very encouraging visualizing video originally posted by Garr.
Dear Super Cool Gang, let us cheers for better tomorrows which we can co-create, too.
It is easier than you think.
Drink tap water at home.
Carry a refillable bottle to work
Ask for tap water in a restaurant.
Avoid sweet unhealthy soft drinks.
Let us lead by example.
Who is game?
