I think it's a lot healthier than drinking coco cola or other soda drinks.
If you are out and about and you are thirsty you buy a bottled water.
We aren't near a tap 24/7. And most shops won't give you a drink of water.
So I think the water czar needs her brain flushed.

2. Bottled water is inherently stupid
3. Bottled water is bad for the environment, and bad for our wallets

Barlow says she has refused a salary and will have no staff, hoping to avoid the bureaucratic boondoggle that plagues the U.N. "I have no intention of hanging out very much at the U.N.... I will still spend 90 percent of my time with the grassroots out on the road," she said. "I don't want to get caught in the bureaucracy." Barlow sees herself as an activist voice within the U.N., continuing a 20-year career in water activism during which she has written numerous books and led international protests against the World Trade Organizations and the water industry.
She hopes that increased international pressure will force nations to reconsider selling water rights. "If nothing else," she said, it would give people "a personal spiritual tool to say we have these fundamental rights" and help water activists make a bigger push worldwide.
