In today's newsletter of www.stopglobalwarming.org (for which you visit and join the virtual march in the fight against global warming) they included the Brooklyn Green Team! They were inspired by our announcement and YOUR participation in the three-month No Disposable Water Bottle Challenge. Here is what they had to say:

WATER BOTTLE CHALLENGE
Inspired by our friends at Brooklyn Green Team, who are running their own "No Disposable Water Bottle Challenge," we would like to challenge our virtual marchers to give up disposable water bottles. Start with a commitment not to purchase any plastic bottled beverages between now and Earth Day (April 22).Every year, Americans throw away over 22 billion plastic bottles, the majority ending up in landfills. Across the country, only 10 percent of plastic water bottles are recycled, says a report from the New York state Department of Conservation. Bottle production requires millions of barrels of oil, and the bottles create toxic air pollution as they are incinerated with regular trash. As the Brooklyn Green Team puts it, it's time for us all to "kick the disposable lifestyle."
How Exciting! Please email BGT at firstname.lastname@example.org and write SIGN ME UP! to join the challenge.
